Invite inspirational volunteers into your school to judge a project or an activity.

What is a School Competition?

A Competition Event will mark a fitting end to a wider school project in which young people use a group activity to solve a real-life business challenge. Founders4Schools would then be able to connect you with local business volunteers to judge the efforts of young people and provide feedback.

What is the impact of a School Competition?

Competition Events are a helpful way of structuring a cross-curricular, or single subject, project as they provide a clear target for young people giving tangible purpose and direction. An extra-curricular experience of deadlines and feedback also validates the methodology of the school setting whilst providing an insight to the world of work.
