Young Entrepreneurs

We are thrilled to bring back the Young Entrepreneurs program again this year! This is a great way to celebrate and encourage the entrepreneurship of the many talented homeschooled students in our state. Homeschooled students age 12-23 who have an entrepreneurial spirit and a quality product or service to sell are invited to apply.

Convention attendees are encouraged to visit the Young Entrepreneurs booths in the exhibit hall at the 31st Annual Arizona Home Education Convention and check out the products and services these talented young people have to offer!
