Young entrepreneurs get creative

Brooklyn Elementary in Comox hosted its Young Entrepreneur Fair May 2

Brooklyn Elementary in Comox hosted its Young Entrepreneur Fair May 2.

The gymnasium was dotted with all sorts of creative items made by Grade 6 and 7 students, many of whom were selling out.

The fair has been running at Brooklyn and other SD71 schools for about a dozen years.

“Every child gives at least 10 per cent of their profits to a charity,” Brooklyn teacher Jan Smith said.

The three charities of choice are Project Watershed’s Kus-Kus-Sum project, BC Children’s Hospital and the SPCA.
