Motley Rice Donates to Support Youth Entrepreneurship

motley rice

Thanks to the generosity of Motley Rice LLC, each entrepreneurship class in the tri-county taught by a YEScarolina trained teacher will be eligible for $500 for an in-class business plan competition. This is the third year Motley Rice has donated to sponsor our Class & County Business Plan Competitions. It starts off with students taking entrepreneurship as a class in their high school and it culminates with an in-class business plan competition. First, second, and third place win seed money in the amounts of $250, $150, & $100 respectively. Then the first place winner advances to the Motley Rice County Business Plan competition held at the College of Charleston business school. This year the competition will be on May 6th. There are two rounds of competition that day, semi-finals and finals. During the final competition, competitors present in front of a crowd and panel of judges for a chance to win the top prize of $1,000. Second place wins $500 and third place takes home $250. Every student that competes on May 6th will receive seed money thanks to Motley Rice. We simply could not do it without their support. Thank you Motley Rice for having a huge heart and understanding the importance of entrepreneurship education!
