Leadership Academy Pillar: Member Choice

Every summer, OSU sponsors and hosts the Young Entrepreneurs Business Week (YEBW) camp in Weatherford Hall. At YEBW, high school students spend the week running through business simulations and developing original business products to present at the end of the week. They form companies, step into management roles and develop presentations for a panel of judges posing as shareholders, stockholders or potential investors.

Judging at YEBW is fun and a great opportunity to help local high school students develop business leadership, teamwork and presentation skills. It is an especially good fit for any of you who are in the area this summer and have an interest in furthering your business savvy! The students work hard and want to impress you and the other judges with their presentations; this is your chance to provide feedback and guidance as an established college student. 

You will also have the opportunity to network with the rest of the judges who are business professionals; this is the first year YEBW is trying out having college students involved as judges—so the majority of judges will be members of industry.

If you decide to participate in one of these events, please register via the information provided above and email Scott Paja (scott.paja@oregonstate.edu) indicating such—we will record your attendance in the Academy Portal and you will be expected to complete the follow up processing survey as is typical.  

Details and required event registrations are available in the Academy Portal for members.
