Two students from St. Joseph’s CBS, Drogheda, Jack Conor Martin and Daniel Kavanagh, have won the Primary School Challenge 2017 sponsored by Local Enterprise Office Louth.
In all some 23 primary schools with over 900 students took part in Enterprise Awareness workshops facilitated by Lena Shaw which were designed to show the students that the very things they learn at school every day and their inherent abilities can make them a successful business person.
Making Primary School students aware of Enterprise puts them on the road to becoming the entrepreneurs and micro company owners of tomorrow.
Students will realise they can run their own company, know they inherently are creative and innovative and realise the importance of teamwork and the need to complete tasks within a specified time.

Each school was asked to write a slogan to encourage entrepreneurs in County Louth. Lena Shaw judged the slogans based on a matrix, namely key benefits to the county, location, positivity, trendiness and uniqueness.
The winning St. Joseph’s CBS slogan and logo was: ‘In Louth business makers are risk takers’ for which the school was awarded a craft piece commissioned by Joe Lawlor Drogheda.
