Sageland Students Win BizKids Entrepreneurship Contest; YSID Board Honors Team

The Ysleta ISD Board of Trustees honored a team of Sageland Elementary School students, who outperformed middle-school students from across Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Texas to win the BizKids Entrepreneurship Contest.

Sponsored and mentored by GECU, the MicroSociety students created the winning proposal for a business called “Sageland Scottie Treats,” which would market and sell fresh-baked goods to parents for classroom birthday parties and holidays.

The plan also called for a variety of menu choices, a website, and a community impact initiative to donate birthday celebrations to underprivileged children.

Sageland school officials said, “The students presented their business plan, products, and financial information to a panel of judges, who awarded them with the top prize…our Sageland Scotties have made us proud with their hard work, determination, and ambition, and we applaud them on a job well done!”

The Sageland MicroSociety BizKids are: Michaela Bueno, Jennelee Baeza, Brandon Carrillo, Amber Masoud, Michelle Olivas, and Amanda Sierra.

The President’s Award is given by the President of the Board of Trustees to a YISD student who has demonstrated exceptional and/or innovative, out-of-the-ordinary service to others, particularly those within the YISD community.

The contest was sponsored by the Cornerstone Credit Union League to enhance financial education skills among today’s youth.
