University of Maine at Presque Isle President Linda Schott, Aroostook Partnership CEO and President Bob Dorsey and a former winner of the Aroostook Entrepreneur of the Year competition will hold a press event Wednesday, Feb. 24 at the University of Maine at Presque Isle Campus Center.

The event, which serves as a kick-off to the 2016 competition, coincides with another newsworthy event on campus, the Junior Achievement Titan Challenge, where high school students from all of Aroostook County, compete in a business competition against students from around the state. The students will be taking a lunch break as the Entrepreneur of the Year press conference will be taking place.

The long-time LEADers Encouraging Aroostook Development event is now sponsored by the Aroostook Partnership, which was formed when LEAD and the Aroostook Partnership for Progress merged in November.
