However the Enterprise Challenge is still running. Please click HERE to visit the Enterprise Challenge web page.
The 50/50 Enterprise Competition is an educational initiative for schools to help develop pupils business skills. Pupils are given £50 start-up capital and then have 50 days to turn it into as much profit as possible. The initiative encourages creativity, innovation and team work. After 50 days, schools and pupils will log their profits on the competition leaderboard.
All profits made from the businesses will help fund vital lung cancer research and support lung cancer patients and their families. In addition to helping us beat the UK's biggest cancer killer, students will also learn practical skills such as time keeping, organisation and presentation skills.
This award will be presented to the group that raises the highest profit from the original investment of £50.
This award will be presented to the group that the judges feel have demonstrated the most creativity in their Enterprise challenge.
This award will be presented to the group that have demonstrated excellent examples of working together to achieve success.
In 2016 and 2017 we ran two competitions - one for Primary School students and another for Secondary School students. All schools involved did really well and we are so thrilled with the results of the competition! It is great to work with so many schools and to see all their amazing business ideas take form. Groups took part in a range of activities from Christmas fayres to school discos! Please take a look at the pictures from our 2017 Awards Ceremony. We are not running the competition for 2018 but the general Enterprise Challenge is always open for signups.
