WHAT IS THE MAVERICK CHALLENGE?

The Maverick Challenge is a high school business planning competition for high school students in Southern Indiana.

The Maverick Challenge aims to further develop the innovative spirit of our region by reaching out to high school students and showing them viable career opportunities through entrepreneurship.

The program began in 2008 and has awarded well over $100,000 in prize money to students.

This is a great opportunity to help students learn about viable career opportunities, network with and be mentored by entrepreneurs in the community, and spotlight the young innovators in Southern Indiana.

If you are a student and have thoughts or dreams of one day starting your own business, this Challenge is for you.  If you are interested in participating in this competition, visit the registration page.

The curriculum is designed to prepare students for the statewide pitch competition, Innovate WithIN. Innovate WithIN gives prizes to each member of the winning team including $10,000 in seed funding, $10,000 in tuition to any Indiana college, and additional prizes worth $5,000.
