Virtual Power Pitch Bootcamp (Grades 7-9)

Do you have a middle school student who is always coming up with ideas for new and innovative products? Would they like to compete in a “Shark Tank” style pitch competition? IMSA’s Virtual Power Pitch Bootcamp is a week long, half-day, quick study in the steps and techniques used to bring an idea from concept to presentation. Your child will spend four days learning and applying the basics via zoom meetings, presentations, and mentorship. The Bootcamp culminates on Friday with a mini virtual Power Pitch competition in front of actual judges where prizes will be awarded for the top three pitches.
