LAKE COUNTY, Calif. – Six businesses will vie for six prizes at a virtual business competition on Sunday, Dec. 6.

The first prize winner will walk away with a cash award of $15,000 sponsored by the city of Clear Lake and The Lodge at Blue Lakes.

Hands Up Lake County, a local first, is a project of the recently formed nonprofit, 1Team 1Dream.

Inspired by Shark Tank and Mendocino Start Up, the business competition attracted 36 businesses. Fifteen made it to the second phase, a one-day business plan training and mini-competition where judges made a very tough choice.

In addition to the $15,000 prize, five prizes ranging from $5,000 to $1,000 will be awarded.

A special “Fan Favorite” prize will also be awarded and announced at the business competition. Anyone can participate in selecting their favorite business. To vote for one of the 6 finalists, go to https://www.facebook.com/1Team1DreamLakeCounty/.
