WHAT is the Norm Brodsky High School Idea/Business Concept Competition?
The Norm Brodsky Idea/Business Concept Competition is designed to recognize and promote exceptional effort, skill, and creativity among high school students.

WHO is eligible?
Sophomores, juniors, and seniors at any high school.

HOW do students apply?
Complete the on-line application.

HOW are winners selected?
A set of judges review all entries.  The top five entries in each division will be invited to present their business concept at Rider University before a panel of judges.  Scores will then be totaled to determine final placement. If you are a finalist in the senior division and are coming from beyond the local area, Rider University will provide transportation and lodging for the senior finalist. Rider does not want distance to deter a senior from entering the competition.

WHEN are the awards conferred?
Final placement and awards will be announced at the banquet following the live finale.
