The aim of an entrepreneurial project is to create a product, service or event that meets a need or demand in the community, finding a solution to a problem or improving a situation for a target audience. Students learn about the four P's of marketing and how to pitch their idea. Students have the opportunity to develop their public speaking skills and learn how to create an effective visual presentation. Descriptive and procedural writing is further developed with the completion of contest application forms. Throughout the project students have the opportunity to develop self-confidence, perseverance, initiative, creativity, a sense of responsibility, autonomy and team spirit.
Students will be starting to work on their projects in term one in both their English and French classes. Bilingual pitch presentations take place in participating classes and winners are selected from each class to move onto the BHS version of the 'Dragon's Den'. All projects are entered into the Quebec Osentprendre student entrepreneurship contest.
