Three Bryan Adams High School students are among 33 winners who will advance to a national Shark Tank-style business pitch competition this fall.
Stacy Cisneros, Diana Gonzalez and Isabel Hernandez presented business plans to a panel of judges in the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge. They were among the top scorers in the North Texas region and will compete in the National Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge this October.
Stacy Cisneros pitched Cisneros Bright, which makes toothpaste drops in containers that hold 60 drops. One drop is the perfect amount to brush your teeth, and subscription customers can refill their containers.
Diana Gonzalez and Isabel Hernandez presented Queen Shield Enterprises, a fist-sized, self-defense keychain that contains three different gadgets: pepper spray, a window breaker and a sound alarm.
The students have already earned prizes ranging from $300-$1,500. They will vie for a share of the $18,000 prize pool at the national competition.
