The Chamber is thrilled to announce the “What’s Your Big Idea?” Entrepreneurship Contest received more than 5,000 contest submissions from 3rd through 8th grade Arlington Independent School District students. We received 300 more entries than last year, and that does not count high school submissions which are due in March. Through our partnership with the AISD, the Greater Arlington Chamber of Commerce is proud to have empowered thousands of students to channel their entrepreneurial spirit.
The Chamber is thankful to the dedicated volunteers who spent a combined 125 hours judging student entries. We would like to recognize the following companies and organizations for giving their time: Action Coach, The Arlington Independent School District (AISD), AISD Business and Marketing Practicum Students, The City of Arlington, Ennova Learning Solutions, EpIC MAVS, The Greater Arlington Chamber of Commerce Women’s Alliance, The Levitt Pavilion, PSK, Six Flags Over Texas and Hurricane Harbor, Texas Trust Credit Union, Tarrant County College-Southeast Campus, The University of Texas at Arlington and Youth Entrepreneurs. Thank you for supporting entrepreneurship and education in our community.
Over the past fourteen years, the “What’s Your Big Idea?” Entrepreneurship Contest has grown to reach more AISD students allowing them to spread their entrepreneurial wings. This year, the “What’s Your Big Idea?” Entrepreneurship Contest has extended to high school for the first time ever. CLICK HERE to learn more about this expansion.
Without the support of the greater Arlington community, the “What’s Your Big Idea?” Entrepreneurship Contest would not be possible. If you are interested in judging high school contest submissions or working the awards ceremony, please email Education@arlingtontx.com.
