Two ACS Students’ Teams Earn Top Places in National Online Innovative Camp

Over the past weekend ACS 10th graders Viktoria Sugareva and Magdalena Tsocheva won first and second place together with their teams in the Junior Achievement Bulgaria and NN Bulgaria National Innovative Online Camp. The social entrepreneurship initiative challenged the high school students from all over Bulgaria to work online in teams of 6-7, to come up with innovative financial services or products to help better protect insurance clients in pandemic circumstances. Competition was tough but our students contributed competently to their teams in developing apps and assurances for avoiding bankruptcy through forward thinking and advance financial and property defense.

Magdalena said: "For me it was a new and quite interesting experience. Again, the importance of teamwork was proved. Our motivation united us and in a short time we turned from complete strangers to a team worthy of the first place. I'm glad I had the opportunity to represent the College this way!"

"It was a unique experience. I was fortunate enough to find myself in an incredible team of students from different cities. I am very pleased that, in addition to being able to work with people with different ideas and perspectives, I had the opportunity to get to know them and create a wonderful team. It was a lot of fun and I learned a lot of useful information that I can use in the future," Viktoria added.

We congratulate Magdalena and Viktoria on the success of their teams and we're looking forward to the awarding ceremony, once the circumstances allow for it!
