2012 E-Spirit National Gathering and Awards Gala

May 18, 2012

This year Oshki Annishinabe Nigaaniwak was a turtle sponsor of the E-Spirit National Gathering, hosted by the University of Manitoba.

The Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC) E-Spirit business plan competition is a national program designed to encourage Aboriginal students in grades 10 to 12 to consider the benefits of entrepreneurship! Students learn about business development, planning, practices, networking while also receiving national media attention, awards and prizes.

Last night, Canada's most enterprising Aboriginal high school students were honoured at the awards gala. Lindsay Hourie was on hand to present the Social Media Award to Zeballos, British Columbia's own Erick Michael, Damien Cox and Darien Baker for their business E Michael Productions.

The group produces music and laid out the following next steps for their business: creating a formal structure for the company to move from free to paid content, providing digital overlays for vocal artists using their original instrumentals for a royalty fee and establishing a music label!

Congratulations to all the 2012 contestants!
