FIDM Entrepreneur of Tomorrow Challenge 2018 Winners

Mar 5, 2018

DECA Inc. and the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM) are excited to announce the winners of this year’s FIDM Challenge.

The competition tasked students with presenting a new clothing, beauty, home, health, food or entertainment concept in a four-minute video presentation. Participants could spend no more than $25.00 to create a prototype and develop a marketing and distribution strategy.

FIDM executives reviewed all submissions and selected the top three presentations. Each of the top three winning teams will be recognized on stage at the International Career Development Conference this April in Atlanta, Ga.! The teams will also be awarded a travel stipend to attend the conference.

Congratulations to the following students:

1st Place – Dishita Sen from Ardrey Kell High School (N.C.)

2nd Place - Yasmine Azadi, Aadit Joshi and Ananya Srikanth from Washington High School (Calif.)

3rd Place – Michael Chen and Dorothy Perillo-Dutton from Encinal High School (Calif.)
