High School Utah Entrepreneur Challenge

Welcome Students,

The High School Utah Entrepreneur Challenge (HS UEC) is designed to encourage high school students to explore innovation and entrepreneurship, and offers over $30,000 in cash and scholarship prizes. HS UEC is the high school version of the Utah Entrepreneur Challenge, one of the largest collegiate entrepreneur competitions in the country. Utah is known for its entrepreneurial spirit, and we believe some of the best ideas come from teens across the state. All high school students (or those ages 14-18 years old) throughout Utah are encouraged to compete. Students ages 14-18 who have graduated high school or are enrolled full-time (9 credit hours) in college courses are unable to participate in the competition.

Prizes and Scholarships:

Over $30,000 of cash and in-kind prizes will be awarded to teams in Utah with great business ideas.

The top three times will each take home a $5,000 prize provided by Zions Bank
