Entrepreneurial students set to battle it out for annual Market Challenge trophy

Trafford College students are preparing to go head to head in the ultimate enterprise test and battle it out to be crowned champions at the annual Altrincham Market Challenge.

Now in its fifth year, the event forms part of the national Love Your Local Market (LYLM) campaign and attracts hundreds of visitors every year. As well as presenting students with an opportunity to develop team work, enterprise and employability skills, the event also supports the College’s initiative to create a new wave of entrepreneurs who will contribute to the rejuvenation of Altrincham Town Centre.

Last year’s Market Challenge winners collect their prize

Enthusiastic students from across the College have been tasked with creating an idea for a stall with a small budget, with which they have to buy their products or service, and market and design their stall for the market’s busiest trading weekend. The event takes place on Sunday 14th May between 10am-3pm.

A panel of judges including Dr Jackie Campbell, who owns a local business, Neil Clough, Series 9 finalist from the hit TV show, ‘The Apprentice’, and Susan Aldridge, CEO Altrincham & Sale Chamber of Commerce, will be tasked with the difficult decision of choosing the winning stalls.

Prizes will be awarded for most profitable team (overall winner), best planning and research, and best dressed stall promotion.
