Now Accepting Applications for Annual Chamber Scholarship
The Palm Beach North Chamber of Commerce has established the John C. Giba Student Leadership Award Program to encourage, recognize and reward selected area High School seniors who have demonstrated strong leadership potential through a combination of scholastic excellence, community service, and extra-curricular activities. The PBN Chamber recognizes these students at the Annual Education Awards breakfast in May with a plaque and a monetary gift. Money for the gifts is derived from the income of an Endowment Program established under the Foundation of the Chamber, a private non-profit foundation.
John C. Giba, a Jupiter-Tequesta businessman, believed in the importance of student leadership through education. The PBN Chamber Foundation was formed to oversee the endowment established by Mr. Giba’s donation, and is committed to investing in the educational future of our youth.

YEA! Awards Start-Up Funds to Students at Investor Panel Event
Beth Kigel (PBN Chamber), Adam Herold (Kickstartists), and Jan Cairnes (Hanley Foundation – YEA! Presenting Sponsor)
Last week, the PBN Chamber Foundation hosted the annual Young Entrepreneur’s Academy (YEA!) Investor Panel at FAU’s Jupiter Campus. This event showcased the 10 startup business the YEA! class of 2016-2017 has been working on since October. Students took the stage in a “shark tank” style format, and pitched their businesses to a group of local business leaders and owners, known as the ‘Investor Panel’ to compete for real start-up capital to launch their businesses.
Each business was awarded various amounts of start-up funding. Students Kennedi English & Adam Herold claimed the additional honor of being selected as the YEA! Saunders Semi-Finalist for the Palm Beach North region. Their business Kickstartists will move onto YEA!’s regional competition for a chance to compete in the final round of the Saunders Scholars Competition in Rochester, New York.
Thank you to all of the YEA! sponsors, mentors, and volunteers for making these very special evening possible!
