Date and location change announced for FEDCO'S Youth Pitch Competition

The second annual student business pitch competition, “First Pitch by FEDCO”, originally scheduled for Thursday, March 11, from 9 a.m. – 11:30a.m., at the Rochester Learning Center will now be held on Thursday, March 18, from 9a.m. – 11:30 a.m., at the Rochester High School auditorium.


Amy Beechy, BizGro Coordinator, said the change was necessary due to COVID19 safety precautions and policies.  The new location will allow for all of the safety protocols to be in place.  As a reminder, this year’s event will still be closed to the public, but it will be recorded by RTC for future airing. 


This event showcases five team finalists (1 from Caston and 2 each from Rochester and Tippecanoe Valley) who will each have seven minutes to present their business “pitch” to a panel of three judges.  Business Advisors from the North Central Indiana Small Business Development Center have been assisting students with their pitches.  A panel of 3 judges will choose the winners with Fulton County REMC awarding $1500 in cash prizes to the finalists.
