Young Entrepreneurs Named FISD Business Kids of the Year

Frenship ISD sends out a big congratulations to 5th grade students Rebekkah Kuhn from Westwind Elementary and Jacob Culpepper from Crestview Elementary for their selection as the winners of the 2015 FISD Business Kid of the Year Awards sponsored by the Frenship High School DECA organization.

All Frenship 5th grade students were eligible to participate in the Business Kid of the Year competition where they had to plan and organize an original business idea. As part of the design, students had to develop an innovative business plan that illustrated creativity, problem solving skills and understanding of business concepts.

Kuhn’s idea was titled “Picky Eater’s Palace,” a food truck for FISD schools that promotes healthy snacks and food.

Culpepper’s idea was titled “Frenship to Go,” a mobile app that allows the user to purchase tickets, concession stand food and merchandise all from their device.
