The business project, created by Young Enterprise NI and famous crisp brand Tayto, will see students pitch their ideas to a panel of expert judges in a Dragon’s Den style event in April.

High school pupils, who have a chance to win 5,000 plus a laptop each, have come up with a well-received Southern Fried Tayto Wedges proposal and will face the judges, which will include a surprise celebrity guest, on April 15.

One of the students involved with the InnoTAYTOrs Challenge sais,“We are so excited to have made it through to the Grand Final.

“I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who took the time to vote for our schools’ project. We are really looking forward to experiencing the Dragons’ Den style event.

“Although it will be quite daunting to present in front of a large audience; it is a fantastic experience and one that we feel privileged to participate.”

The InnoTAYTOrs Challenge Dragons’ Den Grand Final event is taking place at W5 in the Odyssey in Belfast.
