KCC Enterprise 2021 ‘Banish’ the opposition!!6th May 2021
STOP PRESS! THE TEAM BEHIND BANISH BALLS ARE NOW THE SOUTHWEST REGIONAL WINNERS FOR THE MOST INNOVATIVE PRODUCT AND OVERALL COMPANY WINNERS! THEY WILL NOW MOVE TO THE NATIONAL FINAL ON 16TH JUNE!
On Wednesday 28th April at the County Finals for the Young Enterprise Company Scheme, KCC Enterprise 2021 were awarded “Most Innovative Product” and were also judged as the Overall Winners for their product ‘Banish Balls’. The team were competing against 7 other schools from Devon, Dorset, and Somerset. The product that the team developed, ‘Banish Balls’, deep cleans, removes stains and refreshes all drinking vessels, such as reusable drinking flasks, bottles, mugs and cups. When being judged, the team was praised for finding a gap in the market for a product like this that encourages the use of reusable drinking containers therefore promoting sustainability.
The Team have now automatically been put through to the next round of the judging where they will be competing against schools from the whole South West region. The Team are now in the process of reflecting and reviewing their product and business systems in order to make any improvements so they can be ready to be interviewed by the judges again in the near future.
