Tourism plans earn Rogers 2nd in YEC state championship

Kodi Rogers has an appreciation for the history of Scott County.

In fact, that interest has led to the Scott Community High School senior developing a business plan to offer guided tours of historic sites in the region.

The concept behind her business model, and its financial viability, were impressive enough to earn Rogers runner-up honors in the Youth Entrepreneur Challenge state championship held on April 30 in Manhattan.

The second place finish earned Rogers $2,500 in prize money.

“The judges really liked my idea because it’s unique,” says Rogers. “They really liked that a young kid in Western Kansas was interested in history and tourism.”
