When Arianna returned home she met with Diane Steven, Manager of Kawartha Lakes Small Business and Entrepreneurship Centre (KLSBEC) and Andrew Wallen, General Manager of Kawartha Lakes Community Future Development Corporation (KLCFDC) who sponsored the Grand Prize Award. The business plan competition is directed to all high schools students from grade 9 to 12 and they are invited to develop a business concept and create a formal business plan.
The plans are reviewed by judges who are volunteers with the youth program Summer Company through the KLSBEC.
