Kids for Wish Kids Schools Entrepreneurship Awards 2016/17

Looking for a class project that also will reward your students? The Make-A-Wish Kids for Wish KidsAwards sponsored by Intertrust offers secondary school students nationwide the opportunity to take on a different brand of philanthropy; one that is more hands-on, and involves giving back but also encourages them to be business-savvy. 

The Kids for Wish Kids Schools Entrepreneurship Awards,is designed to encourage students to develop their entrepreneurial skills, build their confidence and create a greater level of social enterprise. Students can take part by developing a mini-company, running an event or taking part in a challenge; and their project can involve an individual or group effort.

From now till 21st December, your class can take part by developing a mini-company, running an event or taking part in a challenge. By taking part you will be helping to #MakeMemories for children with life-threatening illnesses.
