Celebrating 5 years of Young Entrepreneurs

Our 5th annual Get a Bigger Wagon Young Entrepreneur Awards (GABWYEA) presentation took place in affiliation with our 16th annual Haddock Entrepreneurial Speaker Series (HESS) and the Edwards School of Business on January 9, 2023. This year, we presented 9 awards, rather than 5, partly because our applicants were unusually well prepared. Many of these winners had applied previously, and when they didn’t win, they spent time improving their businesses. Others watched past presentations and tailored their applications accordingly. We were impressed by all of them. 

Our guest speaker, Cindy Lowe, was engaging and inspiring, and frequently made us laugh. She spoke to a capacity crowd; many tuned in to watch the live stream when they couldn’t find a seat. 

The 3rd Get a Bigger Wagon comic book was released in the Spring of 2023 and features photos of all past GABWYEA winners. Our 2nd comic featured photos of 15 years of HESS presenters. 

Here are some links to important videos and articles:

Our 2023 GABWYEA competition opens on September 1, 2023, and closes on November 30, 2023. Young entrepreneurs must have an active business and should be keeping a record of expenses and profits for several months before applying. We look forward to meeting you.

  1. What a fun day! The kids are amazing and many have stated they are saving to go to the Edwards School of Business. I know they will hit it out of the park if they do.
