Great news from Snap'd In:
Winners from the Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA!) National Saunders Scholarship Competition were announced on June 13th at the U.S. Chamber’s America’s Small Business Summit.
Seven national finalists convened on June 13 to pitch their business ideas and compete for college scholarships. The finalists were selected out of more than 2,000 middle and high school students nationwide who participated in YEA!’s ground breaking 30-week entrepreneurship course in which they generated business ideas, met with legendary entrepreneurs, wrote business plans, pitched a panel of real “investors”, got start-up funding and launched their own businesses.
At the National Competition in Washington, DC, three student businesses came out on top, winning college scholarships with a grand prize of $30,000 to the Saunders College of Business at the Rochester Institute of Technology along with business start-up packages from Toshiba and BlueTie.
Ethan Shapiro and Ryan Shnider, of the Central Palm Beach County Chamber of Commerce YEA! class, pitched their company, Snap’d In, a customizable and changeable cell phone case which allows teens to change their case to reflect new interest and hobbies. Shapiro is a high school freshman at American Heritage School, and Shnider is a high school freshman at Palm Beach Central High School. The boys placed second in nation, a huge honor, one judge even describing their presentation as “smoother than a fresh jar of Skippy peanut butter”.

In the past two years, Palm Beach County students have placed 1st, 2nd, and 3rd at the national competition, with an additional 1st place finish in 2012, for a remarkable total of 4 top national contenders since the program’s inception in 2004. Perhaps there is something in the water here, as Palm Beach County is clearly leading the way in youth entrepreneurship.
“Sam’s Club is proud to support YEA! finalists as they embark on business ownership,” said Sharonda Britton, Sam’s Club Sr. Director, Strategic Alliance and Member Services. “These students embody the entrepreneurial spirit and business know-how of our founder Sam Walton.”
The national champions attending the U.S. Chamber’s America’s Small Business Summit had access to hundreds of small business owners from across the country who shared management advice, policy insights, and strategies to grow their businesses. Featured speakers included Marcus Lemonis, from CNBC’s The Profit, and Kat Cole, from Group President of Focus Brands which includes Cinnabon, Carvel, Auntie Anne’s, and Moe’s among others.
