Online Enterprising Challenges

Looking for something for your pupils to get their creative juices going?We've got you covered with our online enterprise challenges.

At Scotland's Enterprising Schools we've been thrilled to support teachers, parents and learners with distance learning through our online, country wide challenges. Over the two months we have ran fortnightly challenges, asking learners to use their enterprising skills to submit visual pitches for each design brief. Challenges so far have included: The Choccy Egg Challenge, The Fashion Challenge, and The Book Publishing Challenge.

All challenges are open to Primary and Secondary schools across Scotland with a winner from each category being announced at the end of the fortnight. We've been so impressed with the excellent ideas submitted, we just had to share some with you!

The Choccy Egg Challenge

This Easter-themed challenge tasked learners with the task of becoming the marketing team at the struggling chocolate company, Chocorama. Our winner's were Zoe from Kilmaurs Primary School and Alana from Calderside Academy!

Zoe's choccy egg idea was the fantastic 'Tech Egg' - each egg comes with 5 free plays of an online game, with the top-scoring winner of this getting an Easter egg each month until the following Easter!

The Fashion Challenge

The Fashion Challenge tasked young learners to think about the Fashion industry sustainably, by creating their own eco-conscious fashion branding - including designing the store and creating taglines/slogans. Our winners from this challenge were Bonnie from Kilmaurs Primary School and Logan from Banff Academy!

The Book Publishing Challenge

The Book Publishing Challenge, tasks young learners to pitch an idea for a book that will tackle inequality. They must decide on an issue they'd like to tackle, design the cover, write a short synopsis and come up with an advertising strategy for the title.

We were especially excited about this one - our guest judge, Author and Publisher, Mary Thomson has kindly offered winners the chance to publish their book with Whitewater Publishing! Our winners from the Book Publishing Challenge were Calum from East Calder Primary School and Jenna from Clydeview Academy!

Calum's book 'Reach For Your Goals' follows Jack, a promising young footballer, who is involved in a car accident and tragically loses one of his legs. After being told by a coach he'll never play football professionally, he is determined to prove him wrong and works toward this.Calum's book 'Reach For Your Goals' follows Jack, a promising young footballer, who is involved in a car accident and tragically loses one of his legs.
