Watermelon Business Challenge

Description

Thank you for your interest in the first annual Watermelon Business Challenge. The purpose of this event is to inspire our community to innovative new value-added products using fresh watermelons. The reason we believe this is so important is because the majority of the watermelons produced in Knox County are exported to be processed. If we create new products and process them in our county, then this allows us to keep this capital in our county, thus in turn boosting our economy and our county's development. This challenge also offers many resources for entrepreneurs and businesses alike. Below are more details about the contest rules and prize packages.
