It’s no big secret that Forsyth County has some of the smartest and most innovative young minds in the state of Georgia. Coming this December to the Mike and Lynn Cottrell JA Discovery Center at Alliance Academy is an event that promises to show off exactly that type of student innovation.

Teams of Forsyth County high school students and University of North Georgia (UNG) students will pair up to devise business pitches that will be presented to an expert panel of judges.

According to a press release from UNG, the inaugural innovateUNG High School Pitch Challenge will be held at 6 p.m., on Wednesday, Dec. 4. This event is free and open to the public.

At the Pitch Challenge, teams of students from the county’s seven high schools will compete at the event, pitching their business innovation idea to a panel of entrepreneurs, financiers and business professionals for prize money, the release states.

The Mike and Lyn Cottrell JA Discovery Center is located at 1150 Lanier 400 Parkway, Cumming, 30040.
