Calling all educators serving middle school and high school youth in Allegheny and Westmoreland counties: BUILD.org in partnership with  Richard King Mellon Foundation has launched its 2022 Southwestern PA Youth Pitch Competition!

In this competition, youth will be led through the human-centered design process to create and pitch their own business idea. Youth and their organization will compete for cash prizes, partner stipend, and the title of BUILD’s inaugural Southwestern PA Youth Challenge Champion.

The competition will also:

  • Engage students in interactive project-based learning
  • Offer educators free training & 10 hours of project-based curriculum
  • Help youth become the CEO of their own lives!
