The Abbey's three Young Enterprise teams, Spark, Rock It and Outside the Box, had a highly successful evening at the Reading Area Final, which was a great reward for all the preparation that had gone into their presentations and trade stands. The judges were thoroughly impressed with the entrepreneurial flair demonstrated by our teams and awarded the prizes accordingly.
Outside the Box won Best Presentation and Overall Winner for their "Highway Hoodies" that make pedestrians more visible in the dark. Showing the importance of social accountability to today's young businesses, Out of the Box are also working with Road Safety charity "Brake" and with local schools, delivering assemblies on how to stay safe on the roads.
Spark won Best Business Plan and was overall Runner up with their creative business that offers mugs with star sign-related marbled designs.
