Why You Should Hit Submit by December 30, 2018


The Diamond Challenge is more than just the world’s largest entrepreneurship competition for high school students. It is a life-long community for any teen from any location with any idea. We want to support your ideas so you can make an impact on the world. If you’re still on the fence about competing, here are the top 4 reasons why you should go out there and submit your idea.


1. Gain access to a life-long supportive community

We want to help you succeed not only throughout the competition, but throughout your personal and professional life. Because of our global network, we have connections to some of the most profound entrepreneurs, innovators, creators, makers, and subject matter experts in the world. By competing in the Diamond Challenge, you gain access to this network FOR LIFE!


2. Receive meaningful feedback from expert global judges

Some students are worried that their idea might not be completely “competition ready”. That’s OKAY. You will always be better off if you submit your idea to the competition, because you receive meaningful feedback from at least three expert judges who can help propel your idea further than if you didn’t hit submit. There is nothing to lose!


3. Win scholarship money or venture funding

A perk of competing in the competition is that you have the chance to win a piece of our $100,000 prize pool. You can use the Diamond Challenge opportunity as a way to help pay for school (ANY college or university in the entire world!) or, if you are truly passionate about continuing to pursue your idea, we can help you jump-start the rest of your entrepreneurial career.


4. Bring your idea in to the world 

We believe in the power of your ideas. That is why we want to empower you as a high school student to share what you have to say, because we believe your ideas matter, and they can change the world for the better.
