The County Final and product exhibition of the Student Enterprise Awards will take place this Thursday, 7 March from 11.30 a.m at the Abbey Court Hotel, Nenagh. The Student Enterprise Awards is a nationwide County & City Enterprise Boards initiative designed to encourage students to take a business idea from market research and follow through to production, selling, record keeping, management and finally write a comprehensive Business Plan detailing their activities. At local level, the competition is organised by the Tipperary North County Enterprise Board.
This year, 34 projects have been entered across the three categories - Junior, Intermediate and Senior. The standard of projects, as always, is excellent with some great projects in the mix. Mr. Alan Kelly, TD, Minister of State at the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport will present the prizes to this year’s winning students.
Parents, family and friends are more than welcome to come along to view stands and exhibits from 11.30 a.m.
