Young Enterprise Shropshire Tenner Challenge!

The Tenner Challenge is for young people to get a taste of what being an entrepreneur is like.  It enables them to focus on a business idea and see what they can do with it.  It allows them to be risk takers in the business field and use real money to make a difference.  Schools across the nation can participate, making it a great national competition.

How it works
Students are given £10 from the Tenner Bank on the 1st May.  They use this start up capital to set the wheels in motion to run their business.  They can work alone or in a group.  They have the whole month to make as much profit as they can from the initial £10 and are challenged to make a difference and give back to society.  There are online resources to help teachers and students.  Students complete an online logbook to keep track of what they are doing and how they are feeling.
