European Marketing Champions!

On Wednesday and Thursday, May 17th and 18th, two mini companies from this year’s Transition year group took part in the Junior Achievement National final in Dublin, which was held in Citi. “Tech-no-logic” and “Beautiful and Green” made it through to the National final, after both teams got through from the Connacht heat earlier in the year. The teams had to create a stand to display their product and information about it. They then had to explain their products and sell them to 3 different judges who each interviewed them at their stand. Each group then had a private interview with the 3 judges to answer any further questions . The following day, people could come and look at the stand, before presentations and speeches about each product were made to the judges in an auditorium. Following the speeches as the judges deliberated, Star of Dragons Den and potential President of Ireland Sean Gallagher was given a tour of each stand. Around two o clock on Thursday, the winners of the competition were announced… the Mercy College company “Beautiful and green” won the Ireland final! And so we progress to the 2011 European final in Oslo, Norway in August 2011. Congratulations B.A.G.!
