Primary School Challenge 2017

PC Winner 2017

23 Primary schools with over 900 students took part in Enterprise Awareness workshops facilitated by Lena Shaw and sponsored by Local Enterprise Office Louth. Our aim is to show the students that the very things they learn at school every day and their inherent abilities can make them a successful businessperson.

Making Primary School students aware of Enterprise puts them on the road to becoming the entrepreneurs and micro company owners of tomorrow. Students will realise they can run their own company, know they inherently are creative and innovative and realise the importance of teamwork and the need to complete tasks within a specified time. Each school was asked to write a slogan:"To Encourage Entrepreneurs In County Louth".

Lena Shaw judged the slogans based on a matrix, namely key benefits to the county, location, positivity, trendiness and uniqueness.
