If you loved our Shark Tank event back in December, then you're really going to love this. We're doing another round! All six sites that were originally involved in pitching entrepreneurial ideas to our "sharks" will be back once again. This time around, each team will have more time to prepare, as well as volunteers from the community through the help of Vernard Alexander! The youth will have the opportunity to create a prototype of their pitch and even develop marketing techniques. We're really excited, and we hope you are too! The event will take place on Friday, May 17th, and we'll provide everyone with more information as we solidify it! ... See MoreSee Less
