The 2020-2021 competition was a total success! The judges, businesses, I3 Team, and more were thoroughly impressed!


Details for our 2021-2022 competition will be released soon. To be the first to hear about it, sign up for our mailing list. You can unsubscribe at anytime!

Each team will have a pitch slot of ~20 minutes. Pitches must be delivered in 8 minutes; judges will ask questions for 5 minutes and follow up with feedback for about 2 minutes. More detailed feedback will be available after the competition is over.
The rubrics for the outcome and concept pitches can be found on the information pages of this website.
At least one member from each team is asked to check in with the I3 Team during the staff break for final press release quotes and pictures. 
Adult sponsors may sit in on pitches if they'd like, but it is not required. If they do, they must have their cameras off. 


"I will never forget all of the important lessons that I have learned from the wonderful mentors, specifically the I3 Help Team, such as learning how to approach each situation with confidence and patience."

— Patricia v. O, High School Division
