The Rotary Club of San Marino held its annual business plan contest last Friday, where six students who are enrolled in Courtney Rushing’s intermediate business class at San Marino High School competed against one another.
The objective was to design the best business plan for a product or service, which includes a budget, sales strategy and target audience. The competition was overseen by Rotarian Isaac Hung, who recruited three judges from the club’s general membership.
Megan Linden won first place for her Lift Off Lashes business plan. Lift Off Lashes is a mascara that is clear but once it is applied, it turns black. This is good for people just learning how to do their makeup and people who have tremors that cause their hands to shake. The mascara stays clear on the skin. Linden received $300 for finishing in first place.
Second place was claimed by Mira Emaumalee and Sophia Bilvado who created Saviour. The product Saviour is a prepackaged bag with all the supplies you would need as a student/athlete/clean product shopper and college student. For all genders, this bag helps you be prepared for school.
Third place went to Joshua Tang’s business plan for Smart Service Tutor. This is a 24-hour online tutoring service for students from 6th-grade to college-aged students.
Finishing in fourth place were Jayden Tse and Nathan Kar for their Knork Stick. This product is a combination of chopsticks with a knife-fork combination.
