Banovallum School’s talented Young Enterprise team have scooped three out of seven possible awards at the Lindsey Region Young Enterprise competition.

The group, who have designed, marketed and produced a range of luxury gift items made from recycled and reclaimed wood, were the youngest team in the competition.

They won the best Environmental product, the Best Company report and the overall Best Company Award.

Team member Jake Harris, also Deputy Head Boy at Banovallum, said: “We wanted to showcase our marketing and production skills and make sure the products were personal to us.

“We were clear that successful entrepreneurs have a brand that can be created on a theme and in a recognisable style.

“We started with three products and by the end of the project we had three different ranges including seasonable gift items.”

Ms Nicki Shore, Headteacher said: “We are extremely proud of the boys, especially considering the fact that they were up against competition from sixth form students.

“All of the boys involved in the team are differently talented.

“It’s great to see their work recognised in this way.

“They would be the first to say that they have had lots of support from teachers, Mrs Priestner and Mr Bollan and we are also grateful for the backing of our partners from Mortons and Nationwide Uniforms. ”

The team now go on to the County finals in Hemswell on April 23 when they will be hoping for more success.
