Plan Your Own Enterprise (PYOE)


About the competition

Why should students enter the Competition?

Business Planning enables students to see the interconnectedness in business operations allowing them to have an in-depth understanding of business functions. Introducing the Competition as part of your teaching and assessment will provide a real world context for student learning.

In addition the Competition promotes the following skills:
• organisation and planning
• innovation
• decision making
• research and communication
• prioritising and collaborating
• enterprise thinking
• reflection and action.

We encourage you to introduce the Competition as part of your teaching repertoire.

The competition is open to all full-time secondary school students enrolled in a registered secondary school in Australia at the time of submission of their entry. There are two divisions of the Competition:
Individual entries
Open to individual students of any age, attending a registered secondary school in Australia.

Group entries
Groups of up to six students can submit an entry. They can be of any age and must attend a registered secondary school in Australia.


Applications for the next PYOE Competition will open in 2020.
