Applications for the 2013 Wisconsin Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award are being accepted through January 31st

The spirit of our free enterprise system resides in the dreams of our young people. Every day in Wisconsin there are young people who do what many older people only dream about. They turn their dreams into reality, take a chance on success and have a big impact on the lives of others while doing something they love.

Ernst & Young, Junior Achievement of Wisconsin, and Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction would like to give recognition to students between the ages of 8 and 18 who made their mark on our free enterprise system by turning a business idea into a reality; an individual who applied the entrepreneurial spirit and demonstrated business knowledge to realize an actual operating business.

All applications must be completed and postmarked by January 31, 2013.  The 2013 Young Entrepreneur Application can be emailed, faxed, or mailed to:

Junior Achievement of Wisconsin
