The Christian County C-E-O, or “Creating Entrepreneurial Opportunities” program, is now accepting applications for the 2019-2020 school year.
The on-line application can be accessed by going to “christiancountyC-E-O-dot-com”, and click on the “apply now” icon on the top of the page. Applications are being accepted from Christian County high school students that will be juniors or seniors next school year.
The Christian County C-E-O program guides each team member through starting and running their own functioning business, all while cultivating essential skills and an expansive, long-lasting network of community members and business owners.
It is not funded by the local schools, though, students do receive school credit for their time commitment.
The application process begins with asking for the applicant’s cell phone number, so that the application can be verified. The application will then accept the student agreement, take a personal survey, write a short personal narrative, enter parent or guardian information, and then review the application before it’s submitted.
Once it’s submitted, the applicant will received a text and e-mail with a link for parents or guardians, and personal references to use to submit their information.
Applications are being accepted until March 1, 2019. A committee of the Christian County C-E-O board, will review all applications and make the final determination on what students will be enrolled in next year’s program.
Questions on the application process can be directed to Joe Curvey, board president, at 824-4996.
