ABSTRACT
This investigation measures the success of the Rangatahi Business Competition (RBC).The decision whether or not to run the competition again was answered using the following predetermined measures of success: how many of the participants have shown improved self esteem, how many of the participants have shown improved personal development, how many of the participants have shown improved connection to family and community, and how many of the participants have shown improved motivation to move into employment, further training and specifically tertiary education. The results showed an increase in all areas. The competition resulted in strong relationships being formed between the University of Waikato and the schools who participated in the RBC especially the individuals involved. Hence the recommendation to run the RBC bi-annually was made. It was concluded that the competition should be used as a model for other schools within the University as well as in other Universities throughout the country.
