The Big Idea Competition is the event for you! Imagine your audience is made up of potential investors or you're making a video for a ”Go Fund Me" page or pitching on "Shark Tank." Then, submit your video online to the competition to compete for cash prizes.
The Big Idea Competition is an opportunity for AACC students to pitch a unique or original idea via video submitted online. You are encouraged to get creative and identify opportunities that solve a problem or create a convenience.
