Staff at Mallard’s Source for sports decided to take a bit of a trek outside the sporting venue to the Shambhala Music and Performance Theatre as Students from all over the West Kootenay- Boundary took the stage to compete in the Junior Dragons Den regional championship.

The event saw students pitch everything from automotive diagnostic apps to sophisticated branding companies, in a fast paced, fully interactive and entertaining live show format.
Competing in three different divisions, Junior (Grades 8-10), Senior (Grades 11-12) and College/ University, competitors had two minutes to pitch to the judges, following the airing of a short promotional video which had been produced for the competition, highlighting their business or business concept.

And the winners were:
 Junior division (Grade 8-10)

  • 1st place- Jessica Zwick, Megan Cousins, NIX, Stanley Humphries
  • 2nd place- Cameron Mackintosh, MSDA, Nakusp Secondary
  • 3rd place – Allison Plamondon, Deb Step, Rossland Summits School

 College/ University Division

  • 1st place- Mitch Roscoe, Ryan Henderson, Creative North Branding, Selkirk College
  • 2nd place – Vanessa Legge, Joyful Seeds, Selkirk College
  • 3rd place – Laurie Ford, Tyler McCauley, Desirae Robinson, Alex Reaburn, The Roving Gatsby, Selkirk College

The top three in each division now move on to compete for over $6000 in cash prizes at the Kootenay wide Junior Dragons Den championship Saturday, May 6th, 2017 at the Charles Bailey theatre.

Mallards Source for sports would like to salute all the competitors with Team of the Week honours.
