High School Division

The high school teams provide the same information as do all of the teams, but are judged in a separate track, based on their age and experience.

Some significant differences:

  • Teams are invited to participate in Problems That Matter
    • Great way to engage with ND network and other high school teams
    • Design Thinking theories to help take a deeper dive into the problem your venture is solving
  • Their initial involvement ends at Round 2
  • Winners are decided by a diverse panel of judges to determine top 3 places
  • Sponsor selects best women led venture despite scoring position
  • All participants are invited and encouraged to participate in the Startup Showcase- April 26, 2024
    • Teams are eligible for Best Presentation Startup Showcase Awards
  • Top scoring team is invited to present live on stage at the final event- April 26, 2024
