Stu Clark New Venture Championships: High School Edition

Thursday May 27 & Friday May 28, 2021

The Stu Clark New Venture Championships: High School Edition is a competition for high school students across the Province of Manitoba with over $6,000 in prize money to be won!

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.

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!
