1st Prize to Psychico College High School’s Young Entrepreneurs Club in Social Innovation Relay

Psychico College High School’s Young Entrepreneurs Club triumphed in the PanHellenic Social Innovation Relay, organized by Junior Achievement Greece, placing 1st among 70 teams that competed from around Greece.  The Club is comprised of 43 members and was represented in this competition by Chara Moraitaki (10th grade), Despoina-Victoria Drikogia (10th grade), Athanasios Linatsas (11th grade), and Georgios Moustakas (12th grade).

 

Social Innovation Relay (SIR) is a global, online educational program for secondary school students (ages 15-18) whereby students develop real world social problem solving ideas. Its objective is to encourage students to recognize social challenges in their environment and to understand the concept of social entrepreneurship and innovation.  At the same time, participation helps students to develop their entrepreneurial spirit and cultivate skills such as teamwork, communication, self-confidence, as well critical and creative thinking.

 

“Medinow,” the student enterprise created this year by the Young Entrepreneurs Club of Psychico College High School, will represent our country in the Global Online SIR on June 16, 2020.
