Youths at Shortreed Elementary school hosted an entrepreneurial fair last week in their gymnasium, at which they marketed their products, from potted plants to handcrafted items.

Students at Shortreed Elementary school were given the challenge of coming up with individual business projects as well as marketing and business plans for their products, which ranged from hand-crafted wooden bowls and other items to bath soaps and even a unique “weather rock”.

Last week the students held an entrepreneur’s fair in their gymnasium and sold their products to friends and family members. It was an exercise in promoting locally made and sold products and was judged a success by all who attended.
