It is that time of year again!

The excitement is building as secondary school students throughout North Tipperary are putting the final touches to their business projects and exhibition stands for the County Final of the Student Enterprise Awards.  The final will take place in the Abbey Court Hotel, Nenagh on Wednesday next, 9th March.

Parents, family and friends are more than welcome to come along to view the stands and exhibits from 11.30 am.

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 a local level, the competition is organised by the Tipperary North County Enterprise Board.

Last year Gaelcholaiste na Siuire, Thurles scooped the top prize in both Intermediate and Senior Categories competing against 5 other schools and 110 students.  This year there will be seven schools (Colaiste Mhuire -Thurles, Nenagh Vocational School, Ursuline Convent – Thurles, Our Lady’s Secondary School – Templemore, Presentation Secondary School – Thurles, St. Mary’s Secondary School – Nenagh and CBS – Thurles) and over 120 students competing for the top prize and the opportunity to represent North Tipperary at the National Final in Croke Park on 14th April.

The winning school will also receive a trophy and a share in the prize fund worth in excess of €2000.

The independent adjudicators for the County Final this year are Ms. Carmel Moloney of Enterprise Ireland and Mr. Pat Donnelly, Thurles Marketing Group.  Entries will be judged on the basis of a written business report, product sample, the quality of the trade stand and a student interview.
