This “Shark Tank” like competition will showcase the innovative and creative skills of MCPS high school students as they present their business ideas for a solution to an existing problem, improvement of an existing product, or create a need for a product/service. This year’s team of competitors are from the following nine high schools:

The Challenge will be aired via the MCPS Homepage, the MCPS YouTube channel and MCPS-TV (Comcast 34, Verizon 36 and RCN 89).
Chick-fil-A is the primary sponsor of the MCPS Business Pitch Challenge, and will provide cash prizes for the three winning teams for a maximum of $1,000. The co-sponsor, Educational Systems Federal Credit Union, will provide the medallion for our students and coaches as well as a trophy for the winning school.
Representatives from the MCPS Business, Management and Finance Program Advisory Committee will be present and serve as judges, mentors or supporters. Established entrepreneurs will bring greetings and words of inspiration and encouragement to the student entrepreneurs.
