Application deadline extended for entrepreneurial program

The application deadline for the Young Entrepreneurs Academy has been extended to July 31.

The program, open to students between the ages of 11 and 18, takes participants through the process of starting a business or social movement.

“With a shorter summer, we are hearing that families have been trying to pack in as much fun as they can. We have been contacted by students who are interested in becoming entrepreneurs, but are either on vacation or completing their summer responsibilities,” said Betsy Bair, program coordinator with the Grand Junction Area Chamber of Commerce.
