Arlington public school students are being asked to share their innovative ideas for this year's Entrepreneurship Contest.
The contest, an effort between the school district and the Arlington Chamber of Commerce, is a chance for students to share their product or business ideas.
Third- through sixth-graders can submit artwork or original essays for their “What’s your big idea?” entries.
Students with the top three essay and artwork entries will receive ribbons and be invited to attend Arlington Entrepreneurship Day at UT Arlington’s College Park Center on April 26.
The winner will be announced at the event and receive a prize package with tickets to Six Flags Over Texas and Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, and a T-shirt and trophy.
Seventh- and eighth-grade students can participate in the Entrepreneurship Contest to share their ideas for a product for sale or a business to operate.
The top semifinalists will be recognized on stage at the Aug. 26 ceremony and will receive awards.
Winners in the top three places will receive a gift package much like the younger students but will get medals instead of trophies.
The deadline is Feb. 21, and all entries must be sent via school district mail to AISD Class in The Parks. For more information call The Class in The Parks at 817-466-0578.
