Lake Washington School District will hold its fifth annual Teen CEO Business Competition on March 3, 2018 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Lake Washington School District Resource Center (16250 N.E. 74th St. in Redmond).

To qualify, LWSD high school students must currently own and operate a small business. The business cannot be co-owned by a parent or another adult. To enter the competition, students must complete the application by Jan. 5, 2018.

At Teen CEO, students compete in a “Shark Tank” style competition for cash prizes. Students will connect with business leaders who are passionate about helping students fulfill their entrepreneurial dreams.

Teen CEO provides students the opportunity to demonstrate their entrepreneurial skills, think creatively, problem solve, work collaboratively, assume personal responsibility, exhibit a strong work ethic, display resiliency, create a strong business plan and become involved in their local community.

Teen CEO is sponsored by the LWSD Career and Technical Education Department, the Kirkland Rotary Foundation, Passport Unlimited and Coastal Community Bank.
