Wadebridge School ran the first POWOW Day for their Year 9’s.  The students worked in pre-selected teams of ten.

The student brief was:

 

“You have been asked by a well know supermarket chain to design a new pizza and develop a marketing campaign for it to be launched on the market.”

 

Teams were required to:

 

  • Decide who the target market is (value, mid-range, luxury)
  • Decide on their ingredients
  • Come up with a suitable brand name and logo
  • Make a proto type of their packaging
  • Assess the environmental impact of their pizza
  • Develop an advertising strategy
  • Complete a finance sheet
  • Create and record a 2-minute pitch to sell the product, which was assessed by the buying group (business specialists) at the end of the day.
