Hayley Hoverter of Downtown Magnets High School and Shomari Patterson of the Boys & Girls Club of Oxnard and Port Hueneme are among the finalists competing in the NFTE National Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge, presented by MasterCard Worldwide, in association with Kathryn W. Davis, in New York City on October 6th.

The finalists represent 30 businesses, all of whom participated in the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE)’s program that teaches young people to seize educational opportunities and start businesses, were first and second place winners of their Regional Business Plan Competitions, and have moved on to the finals to compete for seed capital. Hayley Hoverter's “Sweet SerenDipIt Tea” is the first of its kind, introducing rice paper sugar packets that dissolve in your coffee or tea, reducing waste and helping to conserve more trees. Shomari Patterson's “Shamazzle's Dazzle's” creates jewelry that upon each purchase sends a care package to children who are rehabilitating from the harsh realities of children trafficking.

“The NFTE program equips young people with the skills to succeed as young entrepreneurs and empowers them to realize new possibilities,” says NFTE Greater LA's Executive Director, Estelle Reyes. “We are proud to have Hayley and Shomari represent Greater LA at the National Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge in NYC. Their innovative business ideas coupled with their focus on social responsibility underscore the role that business can play in improving our communities.”

“Representing Greater LA in the NFTE National Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge in New York is an amazing life-changing opportunity,” states Hayley Hoverter, 16. “Everything I learned in my NFTE class was applicable to real life. It really helped me discover my inner entrepreneurial spirit. I’m ecstatic!”

“I am so excited about participating in the NFTE National Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge in New York and am very confident that we will bring the title back home,” proclaims 19-year-old Shomari Patterson. “NFTE has helped me grow into the businesswoman I have always wanted to be.”

Finalists were required to develop and present original business plans as part of their entrepreneurial studies at school based on curriculum created by NFTE. As part of their coursework, NFTE students receive hands-on training in launching a business and learn the real-world relevance of math, reading and writing to their businesses. NFTE studies reinforce students’ critical thinking skills and provide them with tools to help them control their futures and avoid the lure of the streets.

The 2011 NFTE National Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge grand-prize winner will take home $10,000, with the runner-up winning $5,000 and the second runner-up winning $3,500. All three winners will also receive two round-trip tickets on Southwest Airlines and a laptop computer donated by Samsung. The grand-prize winner will also receive a $5,000 Coleman Entrepreneurial Scholarship, sponsored by GlobalHue.
