Bullis Middle School Entrepreneurship Minors Hold First Shark Tank Competition
Middle School Shark Tank

The Entrepreneurship Signature Program was introduced into the Middle School this year for the first time as both a major and a minor. Over thirty students enrolled, and earlier this month the Minor class held the first of the year Shark Tank.

The website, “Money Advisor” won the competition. “Money Advisor” is a program that helps teens learn personal finance. Their value proposition includes live classes taught by financial specialists to teach financial literacy. The website, which the students built as their prototype, will help teenagers learn how to manage their money and invest.

Congratulations to the founders of "Money Advisor" 8th graders, Jackson H., Mason S., Ofelia Z., and Sanjay S. 

Dr. Marilyn Moreno, Mrs. Ryann Fapohunda, and Mr. Jason Kezmarksy judged the Shark Tank. They watched presentations from four exceptional teams and were asked to judge them on their introductions, message, and closing remarks. The winning team received a gift certificate donated by the Parent’s Association.

Entrepreneurship Signature Program Director, Mrs. Maria Antokas, who teaches the Middle School classes, commented during her remarks that it’s been an amazing year and congratulated all the budding entrepreneurs on their hard work and enthusiasm.
