YOUNG ENTERPRISE ‘Bizninja’ Competition Competitors from Y10 Business Studies. (Nathaneal, Ceejay, Ethan, Lionel, Ta Eh, James, Akash and Reid)

This year we entered two teams into this Enterprise Competition for the Wellington Region. There were 16 teams taking part. The students were required to solve a problem which was only introduced on the day so no pre-planning could be carried out without any technological devices or Teacher in-put. They had to develop the product and marketing ideas, present their ideas to two business owners who judged their plan and idea. If they got into the final they had to present their ideas again on stage to four judges who run their own businesses. Congratulations to one of our teams who made the last 6 and presented in the final which was won by Wellington Girls High. The Naenae team in the final came up with a safety device which was attached to a cellphone to prevent young children or blind people being run over by stepping out in traffic.
