Attention Polar Bears: Welcome to the launch of SparkWV, a new idea and business generation competition for West Virginia students. The competition helps students spark an idea of future opportunities and career options. It is open to any middle or high school student in West Virginia. Students will compete for up to $10,000 in prizes. This competition aligns with many of your students’ existing activities related to career readiness and postsecondary success and is a great opportunity to expose young minds to experiential learning that will help guide their choices in high school. To participate, students will need to complete an Intent to Apply via the VentureDash portal by November 10th. This is a simple registration that allows SparkWV’s organizers to coordinate the appropriate resources to fully support all participating students. After registering, students will need to complete the Round 1 Open Call submission requirements by November 30. This is where students share a little more about the business or idea they are proposing, decide if they want to compete individually or as a team, and select their competition track: Track 1: BIG IDEAS - Students have an idea for a product or invention that solves a problem, but don’t necessarily have the physical resources or expertise to make it. Examples: Apps, inventions, etc. Track 2: SMALL BUSINESS - Students have a business idea that is viable and could be started in their local community or a hobby/skill that they could sell. Examples: Homemade jewelry, local coffee shop, etc. SparkWV is coordinated by The EdVenture Group in partnership with the West Virginia Department of Education. The EdVenture Group will be hosting a series of SparkWV Info Sessions over the next few weeks to share further details on the program and competition requirements. Complete this short Interest Inquiry Form to register for a session and join the mailing list for updates. Session dates/times: A calendar invite will be sent for selected dates/times.
