SlingShot Polk is now positioning itself to tackle the biggest problems facing Polk County! The goal is to leverage our young, creative, and talented entrepreneurs by engaging them with private and civic leaders to solve a problem that matters to Polk County and its residents. Our hope is that through this effort we will achieve actionable steps for change as well as an increased retainment of our best and brightest in Polk County. Middle, high school, and college students and entrepreneurs under the age of 30 are invited to enter plans outlining a solution to one of Polk's biggest problems, First, second, and third place winners in two contest categories will receive thousands of dollars in cash prizes. While SlingShot Polk is administered by the Lakeland Chamber of Commerce, it is a county-wide initiative. Find us on Facebook!
