In It To Win It Contest Winner Announced

The first In It To Win It contest for Wingham wrapped up on June 13 at the Wingham Legion.  Five entrepreneurs pitched their business ideas to judges who then awarded the grand prize.
The 5 ideas were a security business, e-bike sales & service, lawn/garden maintenance, a wellness cafe and a gift design business.  Each one spoke about their business idea and took questions from the panel of judges.  The judges were BIA Board member Jordan Hodgins, BIA members Sherry Giffen of Sherry’s Barber Shop and Sandra Ambing of Gemstone Essence, Murray Simpson, Chair of the North Huron Economic Development Committee and Glen Manjin of Libro.  The evening masters of ceremony were Scott Miller of Blackburn News and Denise Lockie from the NH Recreation Department.
After the pitches, refreshments were served while the judges made their decision.  The result was that Nicole Urquhart of Huron County Designs was named the winner.  Nicole has been running a business out of her Brussels home, but will now be able to open a storefront on Josephine Street in Wingham.  She gave a very detailed business plan and answered a variety of judge’s questions with strong answers.
Congratulations Nicole.  We look forward to seeing your new business open in Wingham.
