KTV MARKET DAY NATIONAL WINNER (article first published : 2003-11-16)

Young people between the ages of 6 to 16 across South Africa once again impatiently waited for K-TV Market Day that this year took place at eight different venues in South Africa and Namibia. This year's overall national winner is 12 year-old Abby Houghton from Kimberly.

Abby's business was called Kablam and featured Beaded Accessories e.g. beaded jewelry such as necklaces and bangles but her best seller was her beaded bra straps. "I feel amazed", Abby says excitedly, "There were a lot of great stalls in Kimberly and I'm sure there were even better ones in the rest of the regions. I'm just very glad to see that all my hard work has paid off and I already have a lot of orders line up for Christmas." Abby wins herself a bursary from the Allenby/Damelin education groups to the value of R30,000 - which will be kept for her until she's old enough to put it to good use.

Celebrating the spirit of entrepreneurship of young ones has always been KTV's main goal and this year's event did not disappoint as children got a chance to showcase their individual talents in different categories.
