Enter Your Idea to Win $30,000 in Prizes

Final Event & Showcase: April 15, 2017


The High School Utah Entrepreneur Challenge (HS UEC) is designed to encourage high school students to explore innovation and entrepreneurship and offers over $30,000 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) throughout Utah are encouraged to compete. Students ages 14-18 who have graduated high school or are enrolled full-time in college courses (9 credit hours or above) are not eligible to participate in the competition. These students are encouraged to participate in the collegiate Opportunity Quest and Utah Entrepreneur Challenge also hosted by the Lassonde Institute.
