TEENAGERS from Arden School emerged on top in the recent Young Enterprise contest
The competition challenges local students to set up and run their own company. Working together, the group have to think up a product and then try and sell it to customers.
Solihull schools went head-to-head in the local finals at the Blythe Valley Business Park. The quality of products was high, but it was Arden pupils who triumphed.
The six-strong team - going by the name of STITCH - decided to sell customised sports clothes with garments including everything from polo shirts to sweat shirts.
After notching up an impressive number of sales and making £2000, STITCH took their product to the local finals.
Tim Whitehead, business teacher, said: “The team then had a gruelling interview with a panel of judges and an eight minute presentation to a group of business people. The event was an out and out success and the Arden Team became ‘The Winning Company’.”
