Daffodil Schools Challenge – Help your students make a lasting impression

Daffodil Schools Challenge is an active citizenship and fundraising project for secondary school and sixth form colleges...

Teams of students aged between 11-16 are challenged to create a unique display around the charity’s emblem, the daffodil, whilst raising money for Marie Curie Cancer Care. This display can be either in the school/college grounds or local community. Once the project is completed students get the opportunity to celebrate their efforts by entering our nationwide competition with the chance of winning a unique prize for the entire team. Schools can register for the challenge until Thursday 30, September 2010. Students will also benefit from top tips given by James Caan, Business Entrepreneur and Dragon from BBC’s Dragons’ Den, who is supporting the challenge.

“The Daffodil Schools Challenge, an initiative which I fully support, will help pupils learn skills in key areas such as planning, management, budgeting, communication and team work. These are fundamental skills for business, no matter how big or small, and lessons learned in these areas will be lessons learned for life. As well as developing business acumen from a young age, the students will also raise funds to help Marie Curie Nurses care for terminally ill people. Almost everyone, young and old, knows of someone who has been affected by a terminal illness, and the Daffodil Schools Challenge helps raise awareness and funds whilst coaching them in basic business knowledge: two areas which are extremely important to me personally. ”
