Project Leader: David Tweed
NZBW is a week-long event designed for Year 12 and 13 students who are interested in furthering their studies at University in the area of business, finance, accounting and marketing.Students from all over NZ spend a week in the Mid-year school holidays �boarding� at Palmerston North Boys_ High School during the programme.

The programme involves working in small groups on business development and marketing projects. Each student in the group has a role to play in the overall development of the business, from Marketing Manager, to Production Manager, to CEO.

The week culminates in a business Trade Fair where invited local business people �vote� for the winning business team by choosing which of the businesses at the Trade Fair they will invest their allocated �investment money� in.

Other highlights of the week include insightful lectures at Massey University in Palmerston North on business subjects, and visits to a number of businesses in the Manawatu area.

Awapuni Rotary Club has sponsored students to NZBW for the past 20 years. Each year the sponsorship recipient has been able to come and talk to our Club about some of the key things that he or she has learnt or enjoyed through attending NZBW.
