Dragons Glen Junior
Scotland’s entrepreneurial challenge. By young people. For young people.

Do you have an exciting idea that you want to make into a reality? Then this is the challenge for you!

The Challenge: Children 1st will give you £50 to develop a business idea, create a product or establish a fundraising initiative.

The Goal: In just two months you will grow your idea into £500, to help support children across Scotland.

Have you always wanted to create an exciting app, build a website, design your own sustainable clothing line or holding a fundraising event? If so, we are here to support you!

We want to invest in you – tell us all about your idea, and we will work alongside you to make your idea into a reality. The money you raise will go directly into supporting our essential work with children across Scotland. Our suggested age range for this challenge is 11-16 years old, but if you are outside that age range and have a great idea we'd still love to hear from you!

If you're interested, get in touch to request your Dragons Glen Junior pack.

How will Children 1st help?

Due to the current social distancing restrictions, we will focus on creating fantastic virtual content and hope to have an awards ceremony with prizes in 2021.

Why should I take part?

Children and young people across Scotland need your support. Throughout the coronavirus crisis, many families have been struggling with not having enough food, some having violence in the home and others feeling really disconnected as they had no internet access. By taking part in Dragons Glen Junior, you can help support children and families who are having a difficult time.

If you raise £500 through your Dragons Glen Junior idea you could provide two children with media pads and nine months internet data to participate in online education and to feel more connected with the world around them.
