Two Southland high school students are jetting off to Auckland this weekend for the Young Enterprise in Action competition.

Students will compete in groups to devise market entry strategies and working product models, with the help of mentors.

Aparima College student Christina Grove, 17, is excited about the people she will meet.

"It will be really good to learn how to run a business properly."

James Hargest College student Jack Cowie, 16, is looking forward to meeting his mentors and learning from some of the best.

"I love commerce, I do all the commerce subjects here [at school]," Jack said.

The pair are also eligible to apply for two international competitions - Global Enterprise Challenge and FedEx/Junior Achievement International Trade Challenge.
