Enter Your Idea to Win $22,000 in Prizes


The High School Utah Entrepreneur Challenge (HS UEC) is designed to encourage high school students to explore innovation and entrepreneurship and offers over $22,000 in cash and scholarship prizes. The HS UEC is the high school version of the Utah Entrepreneur Challenge, one of the largest collegiate competitions in the country. Utah is known for its entrepreneurial spirit, and we believe some of the best ideas come from teens across the state. All high school students (or those ages 14-18 years old) throughout Utah are encouraged to compete.
