YBEX - Youth Business Excellence Awards

What are the YBEX Awards

The Youth Business Excellence Awards recognize and encourage the outstanding achievements of young people in Northeast Saskatchewan! Awards are presented to winners of our business plan competition in three categories:

  • The creation of a business idea and development of a Business Plan (The Dreamer)
  • The operation and evaluation of an operating Youth Business Venture (Taking the Plunge)
  • Operating a Youth Business Venture exhibiting significant growth and development from a prior submission (Seasoned Pro)

Who can Apply

The YBEX awards are open to any student in grade six through twelve attending school in the Newsask CFDC region. The awards are also open to any out of School Youth ages 18-29 living in the Newsask CFDC region.

The YBEX Awards are hosted by Community Futures Newsask and partially funded by Western Economic Diversification Canada.  We believe it is important for young people of our region to explore all of the options available to them as they consider their many choices in the next few years.  Whether the journey begins with post secondary education at a University, a technical college or hands on learning experience, young people need to be aware of the World of Entrepreneurship!

YBEX is a great program that provides participants with an opportunity to explore Entrepreneurship as an option to learn about starting their own business.  Submit your entry to be received by FRIDAY, April 19, 2019.
