Dalton's Pitch Competition for Students & Entrepreneurs

Our pitch competition is a contest for entrepreneurs of all ages. First, students will present their business idea(s) via video to a panel of judges in April. Each student or group of students will be evaluated using a rubric. Judges will determine which ideas/students move forward to compete at PitchDIA 2022. At the main event, students will have an opportunity to win cash prizes up to $1,000! PitchDIA is held every 18-24 months as a celebration of the entrepreneurial spirit of Dalton. Our goal is to ignite the entrepreneurial spirit and creativity of our students. Click below to apply today. 

Students from the area are encouraged to apply. The final deadline to apply is February 18, 2022.
