“Connect” and “Survivalists,” two teams from Hamilton Grammar School recently battled it out at the Young Enterprise Lanarkshire finals

In the end the Survivalists were successful attaining the ‘Product Innovation’ award and the ‘Christmas Trade Stand’ award at the Lanarkshire finals. Receiving these awards has further enhanced the experience for the team of youngsters.

Connect also had great success this year, selling their personalised Jigsaws not only making great profit but more importantly using their product in local care homes to connect Alzheimer’s and Dementia sufferers with their families.

The initiative from Young Enterprise allows youngsters the opportunity to set up and run their own business gaining entrepreneurial experience thanks to the Company Programme.

Directors Lucy Grenfell & Matthew Miller, said “Young Enterprise was so much more successful than any of us had anticipated it would be. It gave us an opportunity to innovate and put many of our own business ideas into practice and gave us an insight into how businesses trade and challenged us to solve problems together as a team. I would recommend future pupils to get involved!”
