Choose Abingdon wanted to recognise the efforts and courage of young people in and around the town who are taking the initiative in tough economic times and setting up, taking over or running their own businesses.
Young people in all kinds of businesses entered the competition in January 2013, and the judges were faced with a serious challenge to select finalists from the excellent candidates who applied.
With seven amazing finalists all in contention the final three were chosen and asked to make a Dragon’s Den-style presentation to the judges in March. At Good Living 2013 the winner, second and third prizes were announced. Watch the videos to find out more about the project and the businesses involved.
