The Innovation Summit partnered with Monster.com and Coconino County to provide nearly 200 high school students from Flagstaff, Fedonia, Grand Canyon, Page, and Williams high schools the opportunity to learn the skills necessary for success in entrepreneurial pursuits.
Their day started in the gym of Sinagua Middle School, where Monster.com hosted a two and a half hour workshop, which emphasized the importance of entrepreneurship in today’s economy. Students participated in activities to help them learn networking and communication skills essential to the success of small businesses. After lunch, the students joined the Innovation Summit at High Country Conference Center, where they gathered for an entrepreneurship workshop led by Burt Chnojnowski. Students were also encouraged to network with vendors at the resource fair. The Entrepreneurial Youth Summit was sponsored by Nestle Purina, Flagstaff Medical Center, ECoNA, Flagstaff Unified School District, Coconino County Career Center and CAVIAT.
