Company of the Year Competition 2019
On Friday 19th April 2019 between 5.00 p.m. and 8.30 p.m. at the Royal Hall in Nicosia, the Junior Achievement Cyprus Company of the Year Competition and Award Ceremony was held.
Congratulations to our Junior Achievement Students
They made us proud again.
1. CanTeens not only made it to the finals but also won the prestigious Second Company of the year award.
The youngest members of the competition and the only digital service among the fifty teams which competed for this year’s award have managed to prove that technology is the future.
They have created from scratch an application which is not only working but is also being trusted and implemented by strong and well-known food companies. They have managed to steal the admiration of the guests who visited their booth. They deserve our warm congratulations praise. We know that they have worked hard sacrificing their free time and sometimes at the expense of their school work. The school is proud of our four young entrepreneurs and we wish them the best of luck for the future. I am sure that CanTeens will grow big and they will prove that these young boys deserve the best.
Well done: Odysseas Herodotou, Andreas Fattas, Yiangos Kleopas, Stefanos Xydas
We would further like to thank Mr Stephanos Stephanou from CYTA, Can Teens' mentor on this journey.
2. Voice4me won the signature award, Highest sales
Many people believe the books are not a profitable product. Well, that’s not true.
Sarkis Shadarevian was there to receive the prize and to prove that a publishing company can be a strong human-centred profitable company.
Congratulations to all our team members!
The ten finalists were:
- Can Teens
- Puppies Sweets Patisserie
- Thro N’ Gro
Congratulation to Ballywool and we wish them the best in the European finals.
Further, we would like to congratulate all participants in the Junior Achievement competition especially our students. We are very proud of our student teams: Brain Treats, Can Teens, CyFit and Voice4Me for all their hard work this year.
Further, we would like to thank the teacher coordinators: Mr Xenios Polydorou and Ms Maro Polydorou for guiding and supporting our students and all the mentors that further supported our teams.
Finally, we would like to thank Junior Achievement Cyprus for making this competition possible.
Looking forward to next year’s competition.
