    Prizes in the 11th edition of the Entrepreneurship Olympics awarded

    The ceremony of presenting diplomas and prizes to the winners of the 11th Entrepreneurship Olympics took place in Warsaw School of Economics on June 13. The best students have also been admitted to the state economic universities. During the ceremony the slogan of the next edition of the contest – "Leadership in business" – was announced.

    The Entrepreneurship Olympics is one of the biggest thematic competitions in Poland. Over 17,000 students from 1,051 high schools from all over Poland applied to participate in its 11th edition. The winner was Konrad Grabowicz from Jan and Jędrzej Śniadecki High School No 6 in Bydgoszcz. The ceremony held on June 13 was attended by 25 best contestants, as well as their teachers, school principals and representatives of the Olympics Partners and economic universities acting as the co-organizers of the contest.

    “Your presence here is also a birthday gift for Warsaw School of Economics, as it is celebrating its 110th anniversary,” WSE Rector Prof. Tomasz Szapiro said in his welcome address. Also Prof. Ryszard Kokoszczyński, a member of the Board of the National Bank of Poland, the Olympics Strategic Partner, congratulated the winners. He noted that long-term investing in economic education of young people is very important for the National Bank of Poland. Addressing the students’ tutors he pointed out to the fact that “no words could make teachers pleased more than they are when watching their students’ progress.”

    “As a Foundation, we try to support those initiatives that help people become valuable citizens who think of the world that is outside their narrow professional interests,” Radosław Jasiński of the Polish-American Freedom Foundation, the Olympics Strategic Partner said speaking about the need to invest not only in young people’s knowledge and skills but first of all in their attitudes. “Invest your time well and do not complain. Remember the Chinese proverb that says ‘don’t complain that the task is hard, that you have to climb the mountain, because you are going to be on its top,” he added congratulating the winners.

    Prof. Piotr Płoszajski, the head of the Department of Management Theory at WSE gave a lecture on “The Praise of Imperfection. Innovation in the times of New Economy, the Internet, Things and Heretics”. Moreover, principals of the best high schools were presented with letters of congratulations from Speaker of Polish Senate Stanisław Karczewski.

    Receiving the prizes, Konrad Grabowicz, the winner of the 11th edition said: “Participation in the gala and satisfaction with the results achieved are the best compensation of the efforts and preparations I had to make. I also hope that winning the prize will mean the next step in my adventure with entrepreneurship and economics”. Katarzyna Sobczak, the winner’s tutor as well as the tutor of the student that ranked second, confessed: “I am proud that the Horace’s Latin phrase sapere aude – dare to think – which is used in our school’s logo was implemented and realized by our graduates, Konrad and Nikodem”.
