Students from the Ohr Torah Stone Oriya High School for Girls took first place in the regional “Young Entrepreneurs” 2019 competition this week, with tremendous support by volunteer mentor Leah Salter and Cheli Wolfstahl.
The students’ innovative “O-2Go” initiative is a lightweight, waterproof, popup private space for hikes and other outdoor adventures. The Oriya girls – who formed their own company named Bonizoom in order to fundraise and create a production line – were chosen to represent the Israeli “Young Entrepreneurs” organization when a Chinese delegation visited the Shenkar Israei College of Design in April.
We wish the girls luck as they prepare for the national finals later this month. Either way – in our eyes, they are winners!
