For the ninth consecutive year, Junior Achievement Cyprus hosted their Innovation Camp with great success, on Tuesday 13 December 2022. Of course, our ISOP students participated with great enthusiasm. This one-day event encouraged students to use their skills in enterprising and innovative ways, fostering their employability and entrepreneurial flair in the process. The participants included students of Greek-Cypriot and Turkish-Cypriot backgrounds, aged between 15 and 18, from private high schools all over Cyprus. The participants had the opportunity to come together in groups of 3-4 and collaborate, culminating in their suggestions based on an innovation for a business challenge that was given on their arrival.
They were required to find the main aspects and parameters that they needed to consider, in order to create a fully sustainable fashion business and to design their business in such a manner as to ensure that all business activities are aligned with circular economy principles.
The International School of Paphos was represented by five Year 12 Students (Himali Sharma, Alexander Yianni, Mia Waite, Elise Matson, Ki Chun To) accompanied by the Business and Economics Head of Subject, Mr Antonis Yiannouros. Elise Matson was a member of the winning team Himali Sharma was part of the team that attained third place. Also, Ki Chun To was a member of one of the top six teams.
The award for the winning team was presented by Dr. Zennia D. Paganini, Public Affairs Officer of the US Embassy. The team will be offered an educational experience that will further develop their entrepreneurial and circular economy skills.
The awards for the 2nd and 3rd place were awarded by ECOMMBX and the US Embassy Respectively.
Congratulations to everyone on their amazing accomplishments!
