Judging at the Schools Enterprise Awards
Judges, Mentors, Students and Teachers
I was delighted to be asked to judge the North Mayo Regional Final of the Student Enterprise Awards last week.
There were 9 finalists from 4 local schools, and first prize went to a team from St Muredach’s, Ballina, with a very interesting (and tasty!) food product for allergy sufferers!
It was really inspirational to see some of the fantastic ideas, from high-tech gadgets to performing arts and much more besides.
Aside from their new products and services, the students have all developed excellent business and interpersonal skills which give them a huge advantage at a relatively young age.
Great for these individuals, and great for the whole country to have such entrepreneurial people coming along to create new opportunities for themselves and for others!
