Hudson Celebrates Global Entrepreneurship Week
Teen and Tween Pitch Competition
In celebration of Global Entrepreneurship Week, the Hudson Library & Historical Society held its first ever pitch competition for teens and tweens on November 15. Finalists in grades 6-12 were selected from the pool of online applications to pitch their innovative product ideas to a panel of expert judges in front of an audience.
Cash prizes were awarded to the top three pitches in two age groups – grades 6-8 and grades 9-12, based on the idea itself as well as the presentation. Pitches can be viewed on the Library’s YouTube Channel or by clicking here.
