Porterville College held its first ever Pirate Tank Competition April 14 in the PC Theater.
Students pitched a business or product idea to a panel of judges in 90 seconds. The judges then pulled the top five contestants who then pitched their business or product one more and answered questions from the judges. Pictured are (from left to right) PC Instructor Sara Freeman, third place winner Raul Macias with “Buzz-Gone,” second place winner David Renteria with scented car air filters, first place winner Karsten Arellano with “Starbooks” and PC Assistant Professor Kailani Knutson.
The elevator pitch contest was presented by the PC Business department and the JEC Center.
