Educators and entrepreneurs in every state have created activities and events to celebrate the 4th Annual National Entrepreneurship Week... an opportunity each February to nurture the entrepreneurial spirit. This special week is designed to honor entrepreneurs in every state and let the whole nation know about the entrepreneurship education programs preparing American youth to carry on the heritage of America's past and become self-reliant future entrepreneurs.

Since 2006 when the US Congress passed Resolution 699, advocating entrepreneurship education and an annual week nationally celebrating the value of America's entrepreneurs to the economy, the Consortium for Entrepreneurship Education has served as the host. Each state is headed by a state leadership team coordinator that encourages activities and events in every community focusing on all levels of education and the community as a whole. To nurture the "entrepreneurial spirit" in their states, the team leaders work with the Consortium to access resources, ideas, and publicity opportunities. Check out some of the great activities in local communities that are underway at the National Entrepreneurship Week website.

"Entrepreneurial Literacy Empowers Everyone" --
How much do you know about creating your own business? Can you answer the "20 Questions for All Americans" that are designed to determine your basic entrepreneurial literacy? During the week educators are challenging parents, teachers, community leaders, and entrepreneurs to see if they know as much as young entrepreneurship students. Check out what these students are learning and see if you can earn an "Entrepreneur Genius" Certificate too.

Join the Consortium for Entrepreneurship Education in celebrating this special week February 20 - 27, 2010 (that by the way is part of Career and Technical Education Month).
