Registration is now open for the 2017 School Enterprise Challenge. The School Enterprise Challenge, run by Teach A Man To Fish, is a global business start-up Awards Programme for schools around the world with up to $50,000 in prizes available for the most entrepreneurial schools, teachers and students. This free Awards Programme guides and supports teachers and students to plan and set up real, sustainable school businesses. Students get the chance to gain hands-on experience of running a real business and generate real profits to help support their school or a social cause of their choice.
Schools have set up an amazing variety of businesses. In 2016, 5265 schools from 106 countries registered to take part and the businesses participants set up ranged from fly fishing in Belize, to an inter-schools newspaper in India and a car wash in South Africa.
Each Award level is divided into three similar steps: Business Idea, Business Plan and Annual Report. Depending on your Award level your school will be doing each of these three steps to different levels of intensity.
If for any reason your school is unable to meet the final deadline! Don’t worry! You can continue your school business and submit your documents in the next year’s Awards programme!
The School Enterprise Challenge Awards Programme is FREE to join and offers a wide range of learning benefits and award opportunities for both students and teachers. It is also an opportunity to generate extra income for your school! Check out some of the benefits below!
