Bank Windhoek is excited to announce the Bank Windhoek BizzKids top ten finalists for 2015. Ten teams, totalling 23 learners, will be participating in this year’s finals.

Numerous applications were received from across Namibia, like Rundu, Ruacana, Omuthiya, Windhoek, Rehoboth, Arandis, Swakopmund and Walvis Bay.

Judges of the competition had a tough time choosing the final ten teams.

“The quality of applications increases each year. This obviously makes the work of the judges harder, but at the same time it is a delight to see the innovative and creative ideas of these kids”, said Mbo Luvindao, Branch Manager: Specialist Finance ESME at Bank Windhoek.
