Pitch Challenge LogoSpring 2023 Pitch Challenge! 

We are hosting a Spring Pitch Challenge! The Young Entrepreneur Pitch Challenge is a pitch contest for students in Utah in grades K-12. It is a simple set of activities that help kids learn creativity, problem-solving, critical thinking, and presentation skills. The Pitch Challenge teaches essential workforce readiness skills and helps kids develop a mindset for 21st-century careers whether or not they become an entrepreneur. Educators and parents can download a free Pitch Challenge Toolkit here.


  • Think of a business idea. It can be a product, service, social enterprise, or tech business.  Participants are encouraged to create an idea that solves a problem in their community. 
  • Create a video of yourself pitching the business idea. Applicants may work in teams, however, each applicant must submit their own video. Only single-applicant entries will be accepted. 
  • Keep the camera focused on you for most of the video. We want to see and hear you pitching your idea. We don’t want to see a commercial.
  • Keep your video short, 30-90 seconds is the time frame.
  • Entries will be judged on the CREATIVITY of the idea and business name; the PERSUASIVENESS of the elevator pitch; and the PRESENTATION QUALITY of the pitch and video.
  • Upload your video and complete all entry forms by May 19, 2023, by midnight.
  • Judging will be complete on May 26, 2023.
