National Company of the Year competitions,6th October 2017 at Kitante Hill school.
The National Expo is JA’s annual celebration of the achievements of JA Company Program students in the various regions of JA Operation. At the end of the annual learning cycle, we organize competitions starting at regional level where all JA student ‘investors’ compete for business excellence awards. The objective of this competition is to gauge the entrepreneurial acumen gained following the participants’ exposure to the JA Company Program experience and to nurture the culture of sharing best practices. From this climax, we encourage students to utilize the knowledge gained from the experience as a team (in a JA Company) and utilize it to start up income generating activities individually. Judges will be looking for evidence of innovation and the application of new ideas in all aspects of running the company. They also will look for an understanding that continuous improvement through innovation is essential to the success of a business.
