Young Enterprise team reach national finals

A group of entrepreneurial Lower Sixth students have reached the Young Enterprise national finals after winning three awards in the regional round of the competition.
 
Bizzy Bee Books were awarded first place in the Disney Most Creative Company category and the Sustainability Award category, before being crowned Overall Winners on the night.
 
Following their success, the company will now go on to represent the north of England at the Young Enterprise Company of the Year awards 2019 in London.
 
Held on June 18th, the awards will be the grand finale of the 2019 Young Enterprise’s flagship Company Programme. Bizzy Bee will join thirteen other companies from around the UK and the overall winner will be crowned on the evening. The winner will go on to represent the UK at the Junior Achievement Company of the Year Final which is taking place in Lille, France in July, with President Macron in attendance.
 
Bizzy Bee have written, illustrated and published two of what they hope will be a series of books for children aged 6-9 years. With sales of over 80 books since the start of May, readers follow the adventures of Bizzy Bee, as he finds out about environmental issues affecting our planet and its inhabitants. Feedback from customers has been very positive and both children and their parents have enjoyed the combination of adventure and learning that the books offer.
