Introducing, the Jeanne D’Arc Tank, where students from both Nashua High School North and South have the opportunity to pitch a business idea in front of a panel of judges for the chance to win $2,500 to help start your business.
Here’s how it works: Rally your team. Teams can have 1-3 members and fill out the form below by October 6th. Then, throughout the school year concluding with a presentation event on May 8th, you will work with your team, teachers, and mentors to create a business plan describing any type of business you want to develop. The business plan must be limited to 10 numbered pages.
You will then turn that business plan into a 10-minute oral presentation including time for any questions the judges may have. The judges will evaluate presentations by focusing on the effectiveness of public speaking, presentation skills, and how well you respond to questions the judges may ask during the presentation.
You’ll have support throughout the program from teachers, business leaders, and Jeanne D’Arc staff to help you develop your plan.
