Postponed – Engaging Youth in Business: Tour of Empty Buildings

Stay tuned for a new date later this year! TwispWorks will host a Building Tour with LBHS and ILC students to tour empty buildings in Twisp and present business proposals for each space. Prior to the tour, students in the entrepreneurship class will have submitted mock business proposals through the Methow Investment Network (MIN) which they will present to the public on the day of the tour. Community members will vote on their favorite proposal and the winning students will receive a cash prize/gift certificate. After the tour, students and community members will meet at TwispWorks for coffee/snacks and to discuss business ideas and possibilities.
