School Enterprise Challenge 2017 prize winners announced!

2017 was another incredibly successful year with over 80,000 students from 6,000 schools around the world involved in school businesses! From organic vegetable farming in India to a talent identification and development agency in Zimbabwe, young entrepreneurs have been busy planning and running all kinds of sustainable businesses!

Young people from 110 countries around the globe got the opportunity to take their learning experience out of the classroom and develop key skills for success in life and in work such as communications, teamwork, problem solving and critical thinking.

It was absolutely inspirational reading through the thousands of business plans and annual reports received this year.  Our global panel of judges have now reviewed them all and we are very pleased to announce the prize winners for the School Enterprise Challenge 2017.
