Contest was organized within the JA Children program for elementary school students across Serbia. Aim of this contest was to boost the entrepreneurial spirit in the youngest students and to get them involved in projects starting with an idea and ending with its realization.

More than 70 elementary schools across Serbia are involved in this program. Students who participated in this contest had a task to show development of an economic idea through characters in a story told through pictures. They analyzed in a creative way the roles they have in the society, both as individuals and consumers.
