BEF 2018-2019

As you know MYP4’s Sophie and Alexandra’s businesses were short-listed as finalists for the eighth cycle of the BEF’s national $20 Challenge and this involved both of them presenting to a panel of six judges at the end of our half-term break. You will have seen their achievements being visually celebrated on the Secondary School’s Wall of Fame in the main hall foyer.

Saturday night saw the glitzy culmination of our involvement in this year’s cycle as we attended the Awards & Cocktail Reception.

Both Codrington businesses won two of the evening’s top categories. Sophie’s GlassGo took the Excellence in Recycling award, with Alexandra’s Recya-Bowls winning Excellence in Corporate Social Responsibility.  The girls won some great prizes including invites to a professional media workshop and a summer camp scholarship.

Then as a complete surprise at the end, the MC announced that there would also be a very special opportunity and platform award. Four of the ten businesses that made the finals were going to get the chance to present their innovations as part of an initiative dubbed ‘Project X’.  In short Project X (facilitated by Bitt Digital Inc. and the BEF) is an opportunity for democratic micro-funding and community-building engagement through collaborative and creative action.  Anyhoo…two of the four businesses that were chosen to be given this platform were our very own GlassGo and Recya-Bowls! Link to more on Project X here if you are interested:  They get this platform on 25thApril.

Not too bad for a small school in a competition which now has entrants as old as 20…

If you get the opportunity, please give the girls a metaphorical pat on the back when you see them about

Have a great week!
