Stu Clark New Venture Championships: High School Edition

SAVE THE DATE: FRIDAY MAY 22, 2020

The Stu Clark New Venture Championships: High School Edition (previously Manitoba High School New Venture Championships) is a competition for high school students across the Province of Manitoba compete at this fun filled 1-day competition in an Elevator Pitch, Logo Pitch, Business Plan Presentation and Trade Show Competition for more than $6,000 in exciting prizes.

This competition exposes students to important life skills such as public speaking, and writing skills and creative thinking in an entertaining and safe way. Along with winning great prizes, students will gain insight and feedback from our judges.

Students can choose to compete individually or in a team and ventures can be anything students are highly passionate about! We’ve seen unique concepts such as a public speaking virtual reality app, a mobile car detailing service, gourmet homemade hot sauce and spray-on grip that improves the performance of athletic shoes! This is an exceptional experience for high school students!
