4th Competition & Student Creation Festival - '' BUSINESS STUDENTS '' 2018
At 10 o'clock the pedestrian street in front of the Chamber of Commerce was full of students and parents whose proudly took pictures of their children and their products. We saw many useful things like soaps from olive oil which is good for your skin and hair. Another idea was a place where you can rent bicycle. I think this is really good because the best way to travel in Serres is the bycicle and we must support the creation of new bicycle paths because I saw only one on the main street and another one in the valley. There were some class whose made energy bars from nuts and healthy seeds. On the other table we saw a special car which helps the blind people orientation in the apartment. The same class made a clever watch for companies to communicate through this instead of phone. They started to work on their project in october, other classes needed 3-4 months to develop their plan. Some students offered food like bread, cookies, sausage. In the competition participated a school for disabled students. These special pupils serve buffet for teachers with coffee, cookie of course with adults help but it also helps in their healing. Most of the students is really young but we could see that they are really proud about what they made. Of course they had help from teachers, experts but I think it is really good that this competition makes them think, they can be creative and learn something about business life. We attended a lecture where besides the teachers, students also talked about the product being prepared. It was good to see the enthusiasm I did not experience in previous competitions in Hungary. I really liked some of products. At the end of the competition we bought a soap from the students, which makes our skin beautiful.
Even though there's the competition word in the name of the event, this is not really about competing with each other, this was all about participation, innovative ideas and getting the exprenience of business life. There were no winners there or we can say everyone won.
