Manx team at final of young enterprise competition

Wed, 10 Aug 2011

A group of A level students from the Isle of Man have been showcasing their enterprise at a competition in Oslo.

The Cahoots team from Castle Rushen High School was representing the Island in the final of the Junior Achievement Young Enterprise competition.

The team set up a stationery vending machine, after research showed 89% of students don't have the necessary equipment for their lessons.

However the competition was won by a UK team, with a pen that was also a perfume dispenser.

Junior Achievement is recognised globally as a leader in entrepreneurial education for young people.
