A creative group of accounting students from the Lawrence County High School traveled to Pikeville on April 13th, 2017 to complete in The KY. Lieutenant Governor's Entrepreneurship Challenge.

The group prepared for several weeks, and even got the opportunity to pitch their ideas in front of several local business owners at Louisa Rotary Club. Though they fell short of a victory at the competition, they learned many valuable business lessons as well as one group was able to supply a rainwater harvester to a selected community overseas that lacks access to clean water.

The LGEC is a tiered business pitch competition open to all Kentucky high school students grades nine through 12. It is intended to introduce students to the realistic competitive business environment, as well as promote business ownership and lifelong learning. The LGEC serves as an overarching pitch competition for high school students across Kentucky.

Three groups attended the competition, their business names were “H20”, “Got Your Back”, and “Eco Friends”. All business plans were created as companies that donate proceeds to different charities. It measures their growth of businessmen in more ways than intellectual. The spirit of giving was at the forefront of each group.

"I'm really proud of these students for creating products that not only could become a profitable business but help their community," said Lindsey case, LCHS Accounting teacher and group sponsor.  "I have no doubt they will apply the skills they learned in this business competition to help them in their future jobs. These kids will be productive and good citizens wherever they choose to live someday."
