OC looking for business judges

Okanagan College’s SIFE program, the Central Okanagan School District and the Central Okanagan Economic Development Commission are partnering again to organize the 2011 Young Entrepreneur Program—The Dragon’s Den edition.

The YEP is a business plan competition for middle school and secondary school students that provides an opportunity to develop their business and entrepreneurial skills.

Volunteer judges are needed to evaluate student business projects in three categories—innovation, marketing and promotion, as well as finance and design

Participation as a judge in this regional event requires only one afternoon of your time from noon to 4 p.m. and provides an opportunity to support the youth in the community.

Judging dates are March 3 and 4, April 15 and 18 and May 16.

If you are interested in judging in the competition, contact Sandra Ballan-Brown at 250-469-6280 or email info@investkelowna.com
