Headquartered in Rochester New York, YEA! represents chapters across the nation, recently expanding internationally in China and India. This year 36 semifinalists will compete virtually representing 35 middle and high schools from 20 states across the country for 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and a People’s Choice Award.

Saunders College attracts students similar to YEA! members who possess a curiosity that drives them and who place a premium on entrepreneurial thinking and innovative solutions. As an active supporter of YEA!, we are proud of the impact YEA! has on transforming local middle and high school students into creative entrepreneurs, across the nation and internationally. We have enjoyed this partnership, where we collectively support the vision of E. Philip Saunders in supporting YEA! students, offering scholarships to competition winners, and providing classroom resources for YEA! teachers and advisors.
