INVESTOR PANEL SHARK TANK EVENTS are DONE!  Congratulations to the Sandy Class Winner, Olivia Berhan of Kelali and to the Granite Class Winner, Penelope Lorenzana!  Both will be heading to Rochester, NY at the beginning of May to compete in the Regional and then, hopefully, the National competitions!  Stay tuned for more information on that!


a note to our students from:

Becky Guertler
Executive Director, Sandy Area Chamber Young Entrepreneurs Academy


"My sincere admiration goes out to all of the students in both the Sandy and Granite Classes!  I hope you had a positive experience through the Shark Tank and I am so glad I get to associate with you all!  

I am looking forward to seeing the great things you all will accomplish in the future.  We still have classes in April and program graduation on Monday, May 1!  

You should all be proud of how well you did.  I look forward to working with you on getting your ideas going or helping you with new ideas!  You have accomplished what many adults are afraid to try!  Keep being rockstars and I'll see you in class!

MUCH GRATITUDE TO YOU ALL!

Becky"

CLASS UPDATE:

March went out like a ... SHARK and April came in like a ... SHARK!  F amilies and friends of the students had the opportunity of finally seeing what all the hard work has been about the  INVESTOR PANEL SHARK TANK EVENT.  There were some nerves (for students, the program director, and the parents) but all of the students did a great job!  A formal introduction of the winners and runners up will be sent out in a separate email.

Thank you to our judges for participating!


A big thank you to

Without our sponsors, this program would not be possible.
