Local Enterprise Office Wicklow have announced the winning teenage entrepreneurs from Coláiste Chraobh Abhann and East Glendalough School that will represent Wicklow at this year’s Student Enterprise Programme National Final on Friday 14th May 2021.  As with last year’s event the Final will take place virtually with approximately 80 finalist teams logging in all over the country. 

The students all took part in the Wicklow Final on 23rd of March which was broadcast live on Facebook and YouTube. An estimated 962 students from 16 schools took part in the annual programme locally. You can watch the County Final below. 

The enterprise education initiative, funded by the Government of Ireland through Enterprise Ireland and delivered by the 31 Local Enterprise Offices in local authorities throughout the country, saw over 29,000 students from just under 500 secondary schools across the country take part in 2019 / 2020.  The programme supports students to create, design and market their own business, all with the hope of reaching the National Final.

  • In the Junior Category, the students representing Wicklow at the National Final are: Oisin Reynolds, Cian O'Brien, and Rosie Davies from ”Sugar Shack” at Coláiste Chraobh Abhann.
  • In the Senior Category of the competition, Wicklow will be represented on May 14th by Nadia Finnan, Heidi Zeig, and Hillary Hollingsworth from “Simple Signs” at East Glendalough School.

Special guests at the Wicklow Final included Cllr Pat Kennedy, Cathaoirleach of Wicklow County Council,  Frank Curran, Chief Executive of Wicklow County Council and Kevin Ward of Reward Catering. There were also special messages of support from Olympic Athlete and European Champion Fionnuala McCormack and none other than musician Hozier who both were very generous with their time.
