It's a chance for kids to learn how to run a business. Hundreds of young entrepreneurs were in town for the Young Entrepreneurs’ Academy’s Saunders Scholarship Competition.

The kids pitched their companies to judge who are real life CEOs. News10NBC has been following two McQuaid students who created high-end, reversible neck ties with their company, Phoenix Haberdashery.

Riley Benner, Phoenix Haberdashery, said, "It's very exciting to think that in just a few months we could be from an idea to pitching the idea to investors and then to judge us for a chance to win scholarship money is just amazing."

Congratulations to Phoenix Haberdashery, who were named one of the finalists.
