2014 Elevator Pitch Winners

PITCH ACCOMPLISHED – Five area high school students walked away from the 2014 Allsup Elevator Pitch Contest at Southwestern Illinois College with $500 prizes for the best business idea pitch. From left, Belleville Township High School East student Gabriel Helwig, Gibault Catholic High School student Megan Branz, Belleville High School West student Paige Smyth and Gibault Catholic High School student Courtney Olson. The annual competition provides regional high school students the chance to demonstrate they can quickly pitch a business idea – as one might have to do if they ran into a potential investor in an elevator. These five were chosen as having the best pitch out of the competitors at the event this year and received $500 prizes.
