The 10X Challenge encourages young people to develop an enterprising mind and prepare for the world of work as they develop what business they can create with just £10 in four weeks.
A Year 10 dream team comprising of Arwen Fflur , Will Rutherford, and Daisy Slotwiner-Duffell, have won the category of ‘Best 10X Business for Good’ in the 11-14 age group.
Judges were impressed by the entrepreneurial skills they displayed in developing a business that encourages people to donate their phones and other IT devices, which are then refurbished and then donated to local care homes and so on.
Business teacher Miss Beth Dexter who guided them through the competition, said she’s very proud of the team.
“Arwen, Daisy and Will all have worked very hard on this and I am very proud of them,” said Miss Dexter.
“The business they developed has very green credentials which obviously impressed the judges.”
Head of Business Studies and Assistant Head (Academic) Mr Mark Turner said: “I think the idea of reusing IT devices and phones is a great idea and stops them going to landfill.
“It’s fantastic news that they have won and reinforces the school’s legacy in recent years of doing well in the 10X Challenge.”
He added: “I’d like to congratulate the team and Miss Dexter for this wonderful achievement and a special mention must go to Thomas and Henry for coming runners-up in the best logo competition.”
Well done everyone!
