Two of the winners of our annual youth business competition, the Celebration for Young Entrepreneurs, were selected over the summer.  We asked them each to patiently keep the news quiet so that we could announce them as the winners at our event in September — and make a big deal of things.  Both of the winners did a wonderful job keeping things quiet.

While they were asked to keep their lips sealed, they got to meet their mentors, with whom they’ll both work for the next 12 months.  We had a video crew follow the winners and their mentors around as they got to know each other and discuss plans for a successful mentorship.

You can watch these great videos here to meet our winners, their mentors, and find out more about their businesses.

Special thanks to One Floor Up for the generous support and terrific production of these videos!
