The winner of CBC Saskatchewan's Boom Box competition for aboriginal entrepreneurs is Meadow Lake's Jana Ross.
"I'm thinking, 'Wow.' I'm thinking, 'I'm shocked and I'm happy.' And this is just a really great boost that I need for my business," Ross said after getting the news.
On Thursday night, Ross walked away with the $4,000 top prize and loads of advice from business experts after impressing the three judges. This year's judges are entrepreneur Brett Wilson, PotashCorp's Darryl Stann and Métis businessman John Lagimodiere.
Ross pitched her clothing line called Bannock Republic.
The idea, she said, is to showcase aboriginal culture and humour in clothing form.
The second-place winner was Brandy-Lee Maxi with her AB-Original Health and Fitness, followed by third place winner, Stephanie Cappo for Steph's cakes.
The competition and the winners will be on CBC television on Sept. 26 at 6:30 p.m. CST.
