A Happy and Hectic Holiday Season for Young Entrepreneurs

BW Creations, the student run business out of Whitehall Elementary, had a very busy December! They attended three selling events! First, they were at Handmade Arcade held at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center. This was a BIG event for us! We made around 400 products, designed our tablescape, made product signs, and drafted checklists to prepare. The hard work paid off! 7,000 people came through the door that day, we sold out of most of our items! The next two events were more local: ME/WE PTO’s holiday market and the Student Made Market at Baldwin High School. Each sale was a big success for these young business owners! The best part was talking to customers and hearing about how much they like our designs.

After the hard work, it was time to give back. A couple months ago, students chose Make-A-Wish for their charity this year. After learning more about the charity from Ms. Buechler, a teacher at Whitehall, students voted and decided to donate $200 to Make a Wish for Christmas! The local representative reached out to them and told them what kind of gift their money would be put towards. We are striving to give $500 at the end of the year.
