“We were delighted with all the student submissions which get better and better every year. We are also thrilled that more than 50 percent of Vermont’s high schools and career technical schools were represented this year. This event encourages students to adopt an entrepreneurial mindset, to explore the creative process and to be open to new ideas. We hope that these skills will help students as they continue their educational journey, enter the workforce, or start a business of their own,” said Laurel Butler, VtSBDC Specialty Advisor for Student/Educator Entrepreneurship.
