Young Entrepreneurs in the Making!

The Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey had a tough job when it came to picking the winner for the Primary School Business Masterclass Competition. Hosted by Young Enterprise NI, the challenge involved Primary 6 pupils from across the Borough designing packaging for a new juice carton. They were asked to include facts about their product, encourage customers to buy it, and ensure their carton design was eye catching and attractive.

Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey, Councillor Billy Webb commented:

“We received just under 200 entries from 13 schools and I am very impressed by the efforts made by the pupils. We have some very talented children in our Borough and the high standard of entries made it difficult to pick the winner. I would like to thank all of the children who submitted an entry and congratulate the winner, Beth from St Joseph’s in Crumlin and the four runners up – well done!”

 
Carol Fitzsimons, CEO for Young Enterprise NI added,

“Young Enterprise is delighted that, due to the support of the Council, these young students have had the opportunity to get involved in the P6 Business Challenge this term. After a disrupted year, it has been great to see the students working together to use their creative skills to complete the business challenge.”
