Young Enterprise company wins two awards at trade fairs
CBA’s Young Enterprise company Kraftees won two awards at their first two trade fairs at the weekend.
Members of the company manned stalls at Young Enterprise fairs in the Swansgate Shopping Centre in Wellingborough on Saturday, December 1, and in the Grosvenor Centre, Northampton, on Sunday, December 2.
Members of Kraftees sold their products – Christmas cards and USB sticks on wristbands - to the public alongside Young Enterprise teams from other county schools.
The teams were judged at each event and awards were given out. In Wellingborough Kraftees was given the award for Best Sales and Marketing Strategy and at the fair in Northampton the team was awarded Best Trade Stand.
Young Enterprise link teacher Alexandra Allan said: “The judges were extremely impressed and the feedback was amazing.”
Shaun Coleman from RS Components, which has been supporting Kraftees, said: “At the trade fair in Wellingborough they were professional, they were all good ambassadors for Corby Business Academy and they interacted with the other students, which was good.
“They did well for their first fair and won their awards for Best Trade Stand and Best Sales and Marketing Strategy, the latter of which is a key one in business.”
