Calling all youth food system and technology entrepreneurs!
In partnership with Grow-NY, Cornell University, NYS 4-H, New York FFA, and New York Agriculture in the Classroom, we are pleased to share an exciting youth opportunity to build businesses in New York State.
Our youth are the next generation of business developers, agriculture, food, and technology leaders. With the hope of inspiring and investing in the future of food, select middle and high school youth will be chosen to attend the 2023 Grow-NY competition. Outstanding students will be selected to pitch their business idea during the competition to a panel of youth judges.
The Grow-NY competition will take place in November of 2023. Information about your current business plan or business idea will be required to be considered for this experience. One winner will be selected amongst the pitches by a panel of judges. The top pitches will be awarded a cash prize.
