Do you know a student who is innovative?  Junior Achievement  in Brown County is embarking on a new venture to help youth become real-world entrepreneurs.  We need your assistance to identify those young people!

JA in Brown County is offering a week long "Be an Entrepreneur" resident camp for high school age students (current 8th-11th graders).  In partnership with the Greater Green Bay YMCA,      JA will host this event at Camp U-Nah-Li-Ya from June 14-19, 2015.  Because of magnificent community support, this camp will be offered to 30 area high school students at no cost.  There will be a small deposit ($50) which will be returned following the student's completion of camp.

Students will spend the week learning from real world business leaders everything they need to know to start their own business.  On the final day of camp, students will present their product/service to business leaders in a "shark tank" scenario.  Those business leaders will advise, challenge and empower the students to create their own business.

Camp will also consist of outdoor adventure.  Every day the students will choose to participate in the outdoor activities of their choice which will integrate the students into the entire camp experience.  If you know of a student, currently in 8th grade through 11th grade, please ask them if they would be interested in this awesome adventure.

Please submit the enclosed nomination form including each students' essay/signed form no later than April 20.  This can be scanned, sent in the US mail or faxed over (920.336.1421).

Students will be notified of their participation by April 30.  Spread the word, this will be a great experience for them!
