Youth Entrepreneurship in southeast Saskatchewan
A leader in encouraging youth entrepreneurship in the province, CF Sunrise works with regional schools to assist students in experiencing the world of micro business. Find out more about the YouthBiz contest.



YouthBiz celebrates its fourteenth year in 2020!  This youth business competition has been created especially for grade 6 - 12 students in the CF Sunrise region (southeast Saskatchewan).  So much has changed over the years, but the basics of YouthBiz stay the same.  Students are asked to dream up a great business idea (or describe one they currently operate), write about it and show it off to inspired others!  YouthBiz has always showcased the entrepreneurial spirit in our southeast SK youth! 

This year, YouthBiz has pivoted - we know that school looks different for our youth this year, so we wanted to focus on helping students explore the creative and fun side of business more fully. 

The 2020 YouthBiz Commercial Contest offers just that . . . a chance for youth to come up with an awesome business idea, write about it and create their own audio commercial for that business. That's all that's needed to enter, aside from a creative attitude and readiness to learn and have fun!

NEW! YouthBiz Winners have been announced!

1st Place ($300):  Anushka Raulji - Elite Academy (Weyburn)

2nd Place ($200):  Amy Gilliland - Jewelry by Amy (Carievale)

3rd Place ($100):  Payton Grad and Chloe Krienke - Clayton Designs (Weyburn)

Special Achievement Awards ($50 each)

A total of 157 students from six schools in southeast Saskatchewan participated in YouthBiz in 2020. Each one came up with a fantastic business idea, wrote about it, recorded a commericial and submitted their entry to compete for YouthBiz prizes.

This youth entrepreneurship program is made possible by the hard work of mentor teachers - a big Thank You for guiding students as they learned all about entrepreneurship. 

The generous support of YouthBiz sponsors is fundamental to the success of this long-running youth program. Thank you to our 2020 YouthBiz Sponsors:
