Welcome to the 2014 Y.E.S. for Arkansas 2.0 business plan competition!
The Arkansas Economic Acceleration Foundation established Y.E.S. 2.0 in 2011 as an online-only business plan competition for students in grades 9-12. The idea for creating Y.E.S. 2.0 was built upon the successes of the AEAF’s Donald W. Reynolds Governor’s Cup collegiate business plan competition and the Youth Entrepreneur Showcase (Y.E.S.) for Arkansas business plan competition for students in grades 5-8.
Like Y.E.S., Y.E.S. 2.0 is collaborative and works to promote and showcase the development of students’ innovations and entrepreneurial thinking as they prepare to enter postsecondary institutions and/or the workforce after high school – and/or become an entrepreneur.
If you have not already done so, please go to http://arcapital.com/aeaf/yes2 to review the instructions on how to enter the competition on iStart, the competition rules, and the business plan evaluation guidelines.
Thank you for participating in Y.E.S. for Arkansas 2.0! Good luck!
