Get Your Vote On: Time to Choose the Next Teen Tycoon!
Sixteen-year-old Jack’s goal with his online startup, Skimling, is to connect high schoolers who want feedback on their essays with teachers willing to critique them – for a small fee. Fifteen-year-old Hana designs and sells whimsical jewelry, clothing and accessories through her business, Hanacorn. And eighteen-year-old Alex is honing his craft through his own video production company, Last Decade Films. (Check out his video entry below!)
These three amazing teen entrepreneurs are just a handful of more than two dozen entries we received for our Next Teen Tycoon video contest. Now it’s time for you to help choose the top 10 finalists!
Now through February 24, anyone can vote for their favorite teen entrepreneurs on our Next Teen Tycoon website. You must have a Facebook account to vote, and you can vote for a video once per day.
The 10 entries with the most votes will move on to become finalists, and from the finalist pool our panel of judges will select the three winners. The grand prize winner gets $4,000 in “seed money” to help launch or grow his/her business as well as a free trip to the TEDxTeen conference in the Big Apple, while two second-place winners each receive $2,000 in “seed money”!
So head on over to our Next Teen Tycoon website, click on “View Entries” and vote for your favorites daily!
