Share

The Junior Achievement Clubs of Saipan Southern High School and Kagman High School went head-to-head last Saturday, showcasing the business models they have built and marketed over the school year.

SSHS’ Pacific Bauble and KHS’ Make Scents broke down the vision, marketing, production, public relations, and finance aspects of their projects. Each company also presented a commercial for their products.

Pacific Bauble offered silicon rubber, silver, or ribbon trinkets, or baubles.

To keep things diverse, the rubber baubles targets children, the silver trinkets target a “more mature demographic,” and the ribbon baubles raise awareness for things like ovarian cancer.

Make Scents showcased their product “Saipan Breeze,” a fabric freshener made from the essential oils of tangerine, lime, geranium, lemongrass, rose, and rosemary. The product is made to fight mildew and mold in homes, offices, and cars.

Saturday’s judges were leaders from the business community.

One-on-one interviews with company executives followed the project presentations.

Various awards will be announced in a ceremony next Saturday. As part of the JA competition, the clubs also held a trade fair last December at the Thursday Street Market.

The Junior Achievement Club aims to encourage entrepreneurship among the CNMI youth.
