2013 Grand Prize Winner:
Sara Linderman, an 8th grader at Pilgrim Park Middle School and a resident of Brookfield, was the grand prize winner of the 2013 Wisconsin YES!, a youth business plan contest for students in middle and high school.
Linderman won with a business plan for SongJudge, a music app that allows musicians to select a song, record a performance and receive a score based on accuracy, tone, articulation, volume and tempo. Linderman, who plays the flute, came up with the idea as she looked for a way to objectively determine her performance ability as she prepared for competitions and auditions.
Linderman presented her plan to about 300 people at the 2013 Wisconsin Entrepreneurs’ Conference in Middleton during the awards luncheon for the Governor’s Business Plan Contest on June 5.
