Budding business owners put their skills to the test

PLAISTOW — Maria Meidanis and Ann Marie Britton both love fashion. They're also interested in business development.

When the Timberlane Regional High School students combined the two, they came up with Charismatic — a formal dress store.

Meidanis, 17, and Britton, 16, both of Danville, were among about 15 contestants in last night's Timberlane Entrepreneur Challenge.

The students worked alone or in teams to develop a five-page plan for their new company that they presented to a panel of former Timberlane graduates and local business owners.

First-place winner David Phillips received $1,000 while second-place winners Meidanis and Britton were awarded $500 to split between them. Third- and fourth-place winners were also chosen.
