Brisbane, QLD (PRWEB) November 02, 2011
High school graduates can enter between November 1 and November 30, 2011 to win $5000 towards any University costs in 2012.
MiniMovers is awarding a bursary prize to a student that needs assistance, shows determination to complete their studies, and will most likely start a business after studying.
MiniMovers owner Mike O’Hagan said the MiniMovers bursary encourages young entrepreneurs and provides financial assistance to help them get started in business.
“We need to stop boxing our leaders into a managerial mindset and encourage risk taking and entrepreneurship,” Mr O’Hagan said.
He said Australia is rapidly falling behind the rest of the world because entrepreneurship is ignored at all levels of education. “Students are being institutionalised, they are being pushed straight from school, to university, then out to the working world, there is no room for young entrepreneurs."
“It is such a shame, because so many young people have fantastic ideas, and all they need are a little drive. MiniMovers was started with two men and a ute,” he said.
Mr O’Hagan challenges students to think for themselves and not follow blindly.
For year 12 students to enter the competition please go to http://www.minimovers.com.au/bursary to view the terms and conditions and submit your entry.
