Prospective hair stylists, beauticians, interior designers and photographers now have the opportunity to acquire the skills to ply their trade and to open their own business. 

OFM content manager Elzette Boucher Krüger says that this competition aims to give budding entrepreneurs the credentials to set them on a path to establish their own business.

"There are so many talented and skilled young people who just need that little bit of assistance and guidance to become a qualified professional. Also, after OFM celebrated 35 years of broadcasting in 2021, we decided that in 2022 the focus should shift squarely to our listeners."

Anine Wallace, CEO of Potchefstroom Academy and SAAHST, says: "Not only are we privileged to celebrate our 40th year of quality education but also excited to collaborate with OFM on this special journey to grant one lucky listener the opportunity to take the first step towards their creative and entrepreneurial future."

Potchefstroom Academy, a higher education provider, was established in 1981 by the founder, Tina Scholtz. The academy has since grown into one of the leading private tertiary institutions of its kind. Potchefstroom Academy and SAAHST are situated in Potchefstroom.
