After a very exciting day of visiting student entrepreneurs' tradeshow booths, reviewing their executive summaries and listening to business pitches, a distinguished panel of judges voted on the winners of the 2014 Draper Business Plan Competition.

There was great food created just for the event by Smith College Dining Services, and a DJ from Smith's own student-run radio station, WOZQ, provided great music all afternoon. There was even a photo booth with fun props for attendees to commemorate the day! The event was made even more exciting by a performance by the Smith College Celebrations dance troupe and by the Smith College Vibes a capellla group.
