May 2006 Slikk became officially the best Young Enterprise Company in Mid-Wales. We went to the finals with high expectations,
and we didn't come back disappointed.
With only competition from
the other company in our school, Saska, things were looking good before the competition even started. The finals were held
at The Pavilion, Llandrindod Wells, and we determined not to let our local supporters down.
We all went to represent
the company, yes even Robbo found his way there via sat-nav. When we got there the prospect of seeing may other companies
frightened us, however they were in the team award event not the company event, lucky otherwise we would have good whooped.
During the day judges came
round to look at our stall and then the best bit a free lunch. After eating it was time for Slikk’s Achilles heel, the
presentation! We had only made this up one day before so it was bound to be bad and was the one thing that Saska beat us in.
However after they had had there moment of fame it was time for the awards. We won –
- Best company report
- Best stall
- Best teamwork
- Most innovative product
- Overall team award
the overall team award didn’t only mean we got a huge ass clock but now we are in the Wales
finals as the mid-Wales representatives. This takes place at the Cardiff International Arena in June so keep a look out for
future Slikk success stories.
