Her Kitsch Bits business sells home-made clothing, jewellery and accessories.
She will receive £1,000 in cash, a flight experience and an iPad Mini.
Ms Kett said: “The opportunity to pitch Kitsch Bits to business professionals was one I felt I couldn’t pass on.
“My advice to any entrepreneurs out there would be to take a leap, you don’t know unless you try.”
The event was run by Virgin Media Pioneers and organised by Michael Overton, a 21-year-old local entrepreneur and ambassador.
Michael said that entrepreneurial business is “at an all-time high in Lincoln.”
Sir Richard Branson, the founder of Virgin, has said that recognising young entrepreneurs is important.
“There is a huge amount we can do to unlock entrepreneurial potential,” he said.
