    2. What is a school committee?

    The school committee is a group of individuals from a school. It consists of at least 3 people who consult each other, exchange and collaborate to ensure that at least one activity for each of the 4 intervention levers is carried out during the school year and at least one eligible entrepreneurial project be registered in the OSEntreprendre Challenge by March 9, 2021 at 4p.m. The school committee makes it possible to share activities and give a voice to entrepreneurial spirit in the school.

    3. What should we specifically be carrying out with the students? Is it complicated?

    The school committee is invited to learn about the 4 intervention levers in Education Through Entrepreneurial Spirit and to identify what has already been implemented in the school.

Some schools will realize that entrepreneurial projects have already been carried out in their institution this year (Lever 2: Experimentation), and that they could recognize their experimentation by posting the activities on the school’s website and by registering them for the OSEntreprendre Challenge (Lever 3: Acknowledgement). Other schools might want to invite a parent-entrepreneur to share his or her passion in class (Lever 1: Awareness). Some schools might offer “Entrepreneurship, I’m Up for the Challenge!” t-shirts, while others can dedicate a space where students can affirm their entrepreneurial character by exhibiting their projects, photos, etc. (Lever 4: Self-affirmation).

    4. Can a student activity reach more than one intervention lever in Education Through Entrepreneurial Spirit?
