Jenks Elementary School’s After School Club Win 2nd Place in Business Plan Competition Sponsored by State Senator LeAnna M. Washington
As part of a 6-week program sponsored by The Business Center for Entrepreneurship and Social Enterprise, instructor Kendall Hayes taught the after school Career Club the basic characteristics of successful entrepreneurs, risks and rewards of running a business, life skills (including budgeting and investing), the importance of a business plan, and steps on how to write one.
Upon completion of the program, the students submitted their business plan for their company Go Green Fashions (“Don’t let Old Clothes Go To Waste, Going Green is in Good Taste”). Senator Washington visited the group to present them with certificates and a $100 check for winning 2nd place in the competition.
