Essay Award

Congratulations to Hailey Orr and Wyatt Hoxeng!!  

Here's what SEFP had to say about it:

"A highlight of this year’s fair was the addition of an essay contest, which challenged students to think critically about their communities, businesses, and potential entrepreneurship ventures. Students were tasked with writing an essay about starting a business in their town, detailing the reasons behind their choice, the potential impact on the community, and the initial steps they would take to get started.

“We were thrilled by the response to the essay contest,” said Heather Broehm, SEFP Facilitator and organizer of the event. “It was inspiring to see students’ creativity and entrepreneurial spirit on display.”

The cash prize winners for the essay contest were announced at the fair, with Hailey Orr of IWHS, Sierra McGregor of Canistota HS, and Wyatt Hoxeng of IWHS taking home the top honors. Their thoughtful essays demonstrated a deep understanding of the importance of entrepreneurship and its potential to positively impact their communities."
