Credit Union of Texas’s Outreach Coordinator, Hazel Moreno, mentors the two teams prior to the competition. From startup costs, to marketing, to staffing, the all-student teams had to fabricate their businesses from the ground up.
All preparation leads up to their final presentation at the CUTX Biz Kid$ Entrepreneurship Competition. There, each team is tasked with presenting their businesses to a panel of judges. Probably the most nerve-wracking part of the competition, the students are subject to questioning from the judges after their presentation. The students’ preparedness was impressive as they were able to confidently answer questions like, “How did you determine the price per unit for your product?”
The Scholar Stop
The team from H.W. Lang Middle School, lead by their teacher Dee Coyle, presented their school supply business, The Scholar Stop. Selling custom school supplies to the student body and staff, the team is hoping to earn enough profit to fund a class field trip.
Congratulations to the winners of this year’s Biz Kid$ Entrepreneurship Competition, Kool Dillz, from D.A. Hulcy STEAM Middle School, lead by teacher Jashida Rather. Their business sold a school favorite snack, flavored pickles! Their product was unique, cost-effective, and who doesn’t love a variety of flavors?
We had a blast hosting our second Biz Kid$ Entrepreneurship Competition. Thank you to everyone who participated!
