This challenge is brought to you by Ernesto Bardalez, Deputy Mayor with the portfolio of Tourism Promotion. We seek to find cutting edge young talent in Tourism on San Pedro Town. There’s never been a better time to put your ideas into action and reach for success!

The Challenge
Got a business idea or concept? If you’re 18-30 and have a fresh innovative idea for a business in Tourism, or have started one already – then we want to hear from you! Our competition seeks the best young minds from San Pedro Town, young people with vision, social awareness and the ambition to achieve.

Our Grand Prize Winner will receive a $2,000 grant, and a free year Trade License. It’s the opportunity to make your mark, get noticed and put your ideas in action.
