Young Enterprise team, Midnight, consisting of students Emily Gray,
Asha Lorenz, Izzy Horrocks, Alice Jeffers, Merlin Jojan, Fran Saunt, Elisha Asif and Sophie Black, recently won the Hull area Young Enterprise competition and will now progress through to the county final on 14th May.
Read an interview with the team below on what makes their product special and how they intend to prepare for the final round:
What is your product? What makes it special?
“Our product is called ‘The Jungle Cookbook’ which contains simple (yet delicious!) recipes for children. Our market research in the Junior School soon made it clear that the children were passionate about helping animals and the environment, but weren’t sure how to. We tailored a book to cater for this. The cookbook not only educates children on how to be sustainable, but it
is also sustainable as it is made on FSC paper from sustainable forests in Europe; which has a much lower carbon footprint than recycled paper.
As protecting endangered animals is a passion of ours, we promise to donate 5% of our profits to a charity supporting the conservation and protection of endangered animals.”
How did it feel to win the Hull area final?
“We were all nervous for our presentation, especially as we were towards the end of the line-up so we had seen the high quality of the presentations prior to us... After waiting what felt like forever for the judges to make their decision, they announced that our team had won not only the customer service prize but we were the overall winners too! We were absolutely thrilled!”
