This year’s Santa Cruz Teen Entrepreneur Challenge held on April 7 was carried out with much vigor and enthusiasm. Monarch Media was one among many local companies that sponsored the event, which was kick started by a motivational speech by Monarch Media Account Manager, Corrina Dilloughery.
Participants included students from grade 7 to 12, who designed projects that competed in the categories of technology, design, and movement, with each category having a different objective. After coding and designing their products, the teams pitched their ideas to a panel of judges from local tech companies.
