THUNDER BAY – The winners of Enter the Den were honoured today at Superior High School. The students in the contest designed a business plan, for their business, presented it to a panel of ‘Dragons’ and then were judged on their plan.
The contest took place at Hammarskjold High School in May, and today was the official awards ceremony.
The grand winner is Lexy Engberg, and her business is a Burger Stop out in Pass Lake. The ‘Lazy Camper’.
The Enthusiasm offered by the Enter the Den Finalists in this year’s competition was fantastic to see. The event was carried live on NetNewsledger.
Based loosely on ‘Dragon’s Den’ the Thunder Bay ‘Enter the Den’ competition features friendly ‘Dragons’ who are there to assist and boost the budding future business owners and entrepreneurs.
The competition this year saw 84 students submit business plans. The majority came from Sir Winston Churchill High School.
This year’s winner, Lexy is a Superior Collegiate student, and that is why today’s competition’s awards were made at her home school.
