News: Five Years of Get a Bigger Wagon Young Entrepreneur Awards

Our 5th annual Get a Bigger Wagon Young Entrepreneur Awards (GABWYEA) presentation took place in affiliation with our 16th annual Haddock Entrepreneurial Speaker Series (HESS) and the Edwards School of Business on January 9, 2023. This year, we presented 9 awards, rather than 5, partly because our applicants were unusually well prepared. Many of these winners had applied previously and spent time improving their businesses. Others watched past presentations and tailored their applications accordingly. We were impressed by all of them. 

Our guest speaker, Cindy Lowe, was engaging, inspiring, and humorous. She spoke to a capacity crowd; many tuned in to watch the live stream when they couldn’t find a seat. 

The 3rd Get a Bigger Wagon comic book will be released in the Spring of 2023 and features photos of all past GABWYEA winners. Our 2nd comic features photos of 15 years of HESS presenters. 

Here are some links to important videos and articles:

We are excited to inform you that youngsters can now register for the Edwards School of Business Entrepreneurship Exploration Summer Camp by clicking HERE. This camp is for young people 9 to 14 years of age and begins on July 10, 2023. This is an opportunity for the exploration and discovery of entrepreneurship. 

Camp sale day is open for friends, family, and guests to attend.   

Our 2023 GABWYEA competition opens on September 1, 2023, and closes on November 30, 2023. Young entrepreneurs must have an active business and should be keeping a record of expenses and profits for several months before applying. We look forward to meeting you.
