We recently had our Young Go-getters 2019 competition. What an amazing experience! Children from all around George participated, and got to show off their entrepreneurial skills!
Like all good entrepreneurs, our contestants started out with an idea! Something that both inspired them, and met a need or a demand that the public would buy into! And some very interesting and fun ideas came from this! From phat plants, to ice lollies, to mini figurines- our contestants brought all of their AWESOME ideas to the competition!
Each entrepreneur set up his or her stall, and got straight to work. All of our contestants were very professional! They wowed us all with their neat appearance, and fantastic customer service.
Our judges from Dough Getters Accounting visited each stall, and found out more about each entrepreneur!
Choosing a winner was certainly not easy! Each contestant deserved to take home the grande prize. But we had to come to a decision for the competition!
Our winners were selected based on highest profits, presentation and handmade products
1ST PLACE➡️ BITS AND BITES!!!
RUNNERS UP➡️THEMBALETHU PRIMARY SCHOOL KIDS
CUSTOMER EXCELLENCE AWARD➡️ ISABELLE BOTES
WELL DONE TO ALL WHO PARTICIPATED!
This whole experience was about so much more than a competition. Real values were taught and learnt, about what the cost of goods are, the difference between the money received and the actual profits received, as well as the hard work it takes to bring in your own income.
We look forward to doing this again next year! We’ve learnt so much from this first Young Go-getters competition, and we plan to bring it back, even bigger and better next year!
