ENTERPRISE OLYMPICS May 11-13, 2016
Congratulations to the 12 QE students in Grades 9-12 who attended the Enterprise Olympics last week in Thunder Bay. First time participants, Christopher Edwards, Cody King, Hailey Barkman, Sam Wood, Samaria Barkman, Hayden Meekis, Malachi Beardy, Calista Mawakeesic, Deshawn Littledeer and Serena Brown joined 2nd year returning students Janine Frogg and Rosella Harper to compete in this Dragon’s Den-style competition! With over 120 high school students participating from all over northwestern Ontario, this 2-day event involves students working in a small group to develop a venture idea within their chosen sector. Each group competes within their sector by pitching their idea to a panel of judges. This year, the winning group from each sector moved on to compete in the finals during a banquet at the Victoria Inn. Four of our QE students made it to the finals in their winning teams…
Deshawn Littledeer from Keijek Bay and Samaria Barkman of Sachigo Lake won with their team’s winning idea of “Green Ideas” in the Retail Sector
Hayden Meekis and his team of 5 competed in the finals with their venture idea of “Your Eyes in the Sky” in the Forestry and Mining Sector
Sam Wood and her team won with their unique idea of “Heritage Hall” in the “Arts and Culture” sector.
A big congrats to these students… way to represent Green & Gold! We look forwarding to representing for QE again next year!! Talk to Ms. Dasno if you’re interested in participating next spring.
