The National Enterprise Challenge took place in school on Monday 20th January. This year’s challenge was to design and develop and innovative product for Grenade. All of Year 9 were split into teams and asked to create a new ‘carb killa’ protein bar for Grenade.
Our students were more than up for the challenge and got straight to work identifying a target market for a new protein bar, which they designed and branded themselves. The standards were high, and the students blew the judges away with their creativity and business acumen.
The day itself culminated in selecting finalists to pitch their ideas using a short presentation that included an overview of the product, PR and a short advertisement. Each group performed brilliantly and made it difficult for the judges to select a winner.
Leen O, Ria P, Anusha P, Naina P and Emma Q from 9-6 were finally selected as victors on the day with their Maple Pecan Pie bar. They will now be entered as finalists in the National Enterprise challenge, which will be held in Birmingham later this year.
Let’s wish them good luck!
