Youngsters given edge

2016-03-16 06:00

WORLD PLAY DAY is giving young business minds a platform to give little business people a big business edge.

The purpose of World Play Day is creating awareness amongst parents, teachers and children of the value of play in the physical and mental development of children.

The focus group is children aged 6 to 18.

World Play Day is calling all business-minded kids who have a great business idea that will change the world or an awesome talent that they would like to share with the community to enter the competition.

This year, the prestigious event will be held on Saturday, 7 May, at the St Mi­chael’s­ School, Bloemfontein.

This popular event is open to young entrepreneurs between the ages of 6

and 18.

Entry is free and all money that the children make on the day is theirs to keep.

Those who enter have to put a business plan forward that should detail the product, a description of its manufacture and a marketing plan.

The organisers will evaluate each entry based on originality and creativity.

All entries close at the end of April.

There will be two categories in the entrepreneur’s day: Children between 6 and 18 (thus all primary and high school children) can come and sell their hand-made wares or they can come to participate in a talent competition.

There’s no entry fee.

For more information on the entrepreneur’s day, email Z PR at or call 051-522-9574.

In terms of the organised sporting activities, it is not so much for competition as for exposing as many children as possible to various sports, such as five-a-side football and mini hockey.
