Young people tackle dragons

Have your say

Barnsley’s brightest young businesspeople pitched their enterprising ideas at their very own ‘dragon’s den’.

The day-long competition saw almost 20 teams and a total of 65 young people putting their bright ideas forward to a panel of experienced business people at Barnsley Town Hall.

The Barnsley Big Challenge runs the contest through the borough’s schools, colleges and young people’s centres. It challenges young people aged nine to 19 years, in teams or as individuals, to come up with a sound business idea.
