App for lower electricity bills wins Innovative Camp for high school students

App for lower electricity bills wins Innovative Camp for high school students

Skopje, 16 December 2017 (MIA) - An application aimed at reducing electricity bills received the first award at the Innovative Camp, entrepreneurial contest of high school students organized by Junior Achievement Macedonia, part of global network Junior Achievements Worldwide.

A total of 140 students from 28 schools applied at the contest. The team comprised of Viktorija Dimitrievska and Dario Petroski from Skopje, Irena Ilieva from Strumica, Nadica Krsteva from Kavadarci, Ahmeda Mustafova from Berovo and Nikola Petreski from Ohrid created the winning app.

Their app helps those who want to purchase an electric product at a favorable price but at the same time reduce their electricity bills. It sorts products by power consumption, thus contributing to energy efficiency in the community, but also the family budget.

The second award went to a team of students producing a business plan for self-sustainable trains, while the third was presented to a business idea for environmental production of renewable energy.

The programme in Macedonia is supported by USAID. The contest is part of the Student Companies project, implemented in high schools throughout the year. ik/11:48
