On December 18th, BUILD Boston hosted our first Holiday Sales Bazaar at District Hall and the lobby of PwC. The event was a big success for our youth entrepreneurs. We had 100 students representing 7 Boston Public Schools come together to sell and gain valuable feedback on their products from 100+ Secret Shopper Judges. The students sold nearly $5,000 worth of products. In BUILD, students get to keep the profits they earn – so needless to say, the students were definitely feeling the holiday spirit.
While the Holiday Sales Bazaar featured our 10th & 11th grade students, our next event is focused exclusively on our 9th grade students who will be selling their products for the very first time on Thursday, April 11th. Keep your eye out for more information!
