2020 has been a particularly challenging year for everyone, and our team has been working hard to continue supporting schools, through our professional development webinars for teachers and our newest initiative for teenagers, the Enterprise Adventure.
We know that there are many school business teams who are still eager and able to take part in the School Enterprise Challenge, and who have been moving forward coming up with, planning and implementing their school business! As always, our team is so excited to see what great ideas students come up with and how they turn these into a reality.
Deadline for the School Enterprise Challenge 2020
As the end of the year is approaching, we have decided to have a submission deadline once again, to help business teams effectively plan their time – and so we can review business teams’ submissions and decide who is eligible to receive their Award Level certificate or a prize this year!
The final submission deadline for 2020 will be on Friday 20th November.
Changes to the School Enterprise Challenge 2020 prize list
The School Enterprise Challenge team has also faced difficulties this year – due to budget cuts, we had to reduce the amount of funding dedicated to prizes for this year. In spite of everything, we are happy to still be able to offer a variety of prizes to the most enterprising schools, teachers and students this year!
We have come up with a brand new prize list featuring more prizes for the Best Business Ideas and Business Plans. This is because we know that this year, many teams will not have been able to run their businesses. But we still want to reward the effort and dedication that teams have put in despite the challenging circumstances! And don’t forget that because of the disruption from COVID-19, fewer schools are taking part: this means that schools’ chances of winning a prize are higher, as they will have fewer competitors.
So, if it is safe for business teams to do so, we encourage them to submit their next template by 20th November 2020 and try to win one of our great prizes for their school!
