The Tiny BIG Idea Competition is a mini version of the actual BIG Idea Competition offered to FFA students. The deadline is April 20th. To enter, follow the link below to submit your business idea in a few sentences.
The winner will be chosen based on market opportunity, viability of the business and ability to capture the readers’ attention. At stake is a BIG Idea prize package including a bluetooth speaker, USB hub, and various items from our sponsors all contained in a BIG Idea over the shoulder bag! In the weeks following the convention, the winner will be notified via email and also announced on our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/BIGIdeaSD) and BIG Idea website. Finalist entries from past BIG Idea Competitions will not be considered. Entries will be accepted until April 20th.
