YAKIMA, WA -- A local trade show is challenging businesses to improve their strategies. New Vision's "Pitch Your Business" Trade Show is putting businesses to the test. 

Thirty judges met with the final 16 contestants Tuesday afternoon to choose which ones have the best business plans and will move on to the next round. New Vision says just competing in this trade show will improve the strength of local Yakima businesses.

"We take them through workshops, we help them write their business plans, we connect them with business members in the community," Jean Brown of New Vision said. "In the end we hope they learn enough to stay in business."

The contest winner will receive $10,000 for their business plan. The second and third place winners will also receive a cash reward.
