Innovative Jodie Reaches National Final

We thank John Tarrant for the photo and feature relating to this very interesting story of uplifting success for Jodie O’Callaghan pictured above. Tap on the image to enlarge. (S.R.) 

Congratulations to Jodie O’Callaghan, Millstreet Community School TY student who has been selected to represent Local Enterprise Office South Cork in the senior category at the National Final of the Student Enterprise Awards Competition 2019/2020

Her product is the JK9, a pet-themed wall hanging for keys and dog leads. (The name is a combination of Jodie’s initial and K9 as an abbreviation of canine.)

  To qualify for this level of the competition, Jodie from Bolomore had to demonstrate exceptional enterprising skills and create a business plan. This all led to a product that is so popular, Jodie’s biggest problem now is keeping up with the demand. Due to the current situation and restrictions put in place to tackle the Corona Virus situation, the National Final scheduled for Croke Park  was cancelled but a national judging panel are  carrying out a paper based judging exercise for all national final business reports and winners chosen. An awards ceremony to present prizes follows later in the year.

Meanwhile, anybody interested on obtaining Jodie’s Pet Hanger creation can do so by contacting her on Instagram jk9_2020
