Hayley has written a blog post about the Student Enterprise Awards last week.
"On Monday we went to the County Final of the Student Enterprise Awards. We arrived in the Osprey Hotel in Naas around 11 o clock and it was straight down to business on getting our stand ready. Our main thing on our stand was a large knot a problem that Aislings dad helped us make! Thank God for DADS! It took us a while to get it up be it was Check Spellingwell worth it! When we finished our stand it was time for lunch. It was really nice (chicken and wedges)......
Judging started at 2 o clock. Each of the mini-companies had to be judged by three separate judges. One was judging us on our interview skills and our stand, the next judged us on our finances and our understanding of business and the final judge judged on our marketing and sales. It took a long time for them to get through every one. They then had to spend time consulting who they thought should win. At about half five the judges had the results. There were five prize to be given out: Judges Award, Best Stand, Most Innovative, Runner Up and First Place. Just Deserts got the Judges Award! Congratulations! and We managed to get Runner Up! We were ecstatic! All our hard work came to a great end! Well done to all groups who were there and to Ms. Leonard and Ms Evans for accompanying us!"
Well done to all the Mini Companies, they did great work.
