WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Summer may have just begun, but some high school students are getting their first taste of college.
Sunday, 50 students from 28 counties across the state filed into Hillenbrand Hall on Purdue's campus.
It's all part of the Seventh Annual Purdue Research Park Entrepreneurship Academy.
Starting Monday, students will be split into teams of five. Each team will create its own business and present a business model to a panel of judges.
Academy Coordinator Juliana Casavan said the event can be beneficial to students.
"They get the opportunity to see what it might be like to be an entrepreneur and experience it for a week, as well as have the college experience as high school students, make an educated decision about entrepreneurship and figure out if it's really something they'd might want to pursue in college," said Casavan.
At the end of the week, the judges will select the three best plans.
Winners will receive money vouchers to attend any Purdue University campus.
Indiana Governor Mike Pence (R) proposed a pre-K voucher program as part of his 2014 agenda. The program would give underprivileged children access to pre-K programs.
