    Kandiyohi CEO (Creating Entrepreneurial Opportunities) Class

    Created by film maker and former teacher Craig Lindvahl.  This CEO class partners with local businesses to create a real world educational experience.  

    Eighteen to twenty-two students will be selected through a rigorous application process to participate in the year-long class.  Instead of students learning about entrepreneurship in a classroom setting, students will visit twenty to thirty local businesses throughout the year and have fifty to sixty guest speakers.  Students will also not take tests or do homework in the traditional sense.  They will be creating their own businesses and presenting them to local banking investors and entrepreneurs via private meetings and an annual trade show.  Students will graduate from this class owning a business. The Kandiyohi CEO program will be open to students from WPS, ACGC, and NLS.  This class runs ninety minutes a day from 7:15-8:45am every day of the week and students are responsible for their own transportation.
     
    We will be accepting applications for the 2017-18 class in mid-January.
    Applications will be available online or in your guidance office.
