The Idea Pitch Competition, through a partnership between the Robinson Community Learning Center and the Gigot Center for Entrepreneurship, invites local Michiana students in grades 6-12 to learn showcase their creativity and public speaking skills as they compete for cash prizes.
Each student must deliver a 60 Second “elevator pitch” to a panel of judges on their idea for the next great product or service. The students hone their ideas and pitches over eight weeks in hopes of winning one of three prizes in each division: Best Presentation, Best Idea, and Best Overall.
