Are you a leader? An entrepreneur? A creator? A changemaker? If you answered yes to any of these, you are invited to participate in an opportunity to bring your dreams to life!
The Consumer Bankers Foundation (CBF) and banks from all across the country have partnered with Ashoka’s Youth Venture to bring you the Banking on Youth competition!
Banking on Youth is an exciting opportunity to showcase your great idea for a venture that directly benefits society. As a young entrepreneur you have so much more than a great idea and the ability to make money—you have the power to make a positive difference! If you are age 13-22, share with us your venture idea through a entry form to compete to win one of 30 different $1,000 seed money prizes provided by our sponsoring banks to bring your idea to life.
And, it gets even better! The top six entrants, chosen by the CBF and Youth Venture, will win an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington DC in May 2013 to learn more about the retail banking industry and to compete in a Pitch Off for the Audience Choice Award of $5,000 and the Grand Prize of $15,000!
Check out how many $1,000 seed money prizes are available to you (and your team, if you have one), depending on where you live!
To be a part of this exciting opportunity, share your idea with us by submitting an entry by March 15, 2013. Be sure to check out the additional information on our site and, most importantly, spread the word!
Whether you have a new idea or one you launched years ago, we want to hear from YOU!
