2022 Spotlight on YouthBiz Stars

About Spotlight on YouthBiz Stars

This annual award ceremony is the culmination of Colorado's largest competition for youth business owners. A premier event, Spotlight on YouthBiz Stars recognizes the incredible achievements of young people who are operating real businesses with real customers and real profits.

Each year, we scour the state for creative and motivated entrepreneurs ages 6-21.  An independent judging panel evaluates the applications based on the execution of their business plans. The judges select one winner and two finalists in each age category who are announced at the event.

Finalists and winners receive a check to help them further their business goals.  Additionally, winners receive the very special benefit of being paired with a Presenting Mentor, a distinguished entrepreneur or businessperson from the community dedicated to furthering the success of tomorrow's business leaders.

We are thrilled to be hosting the gala in-person this year at the Denver Center for Performing Arts on October 13 from 5:30 - 8:30pm.
