Woodbridge School claims top honours in Suffolk Young Enterprise contest
Budding entrepreneurs from Woodbridge School have been crowned as winners in the 2016 Suffolk Young Enterprise contest.
The annual comptition involves students from secondary schools and colleges running a mini-business and this year attracted 17 entries, from which 12 were selected for the final, held at University Campus Suffolk in Ipswich.
Teams were scored on the basis of a trade stand, where they were interviewed by the panel of judges, a PowerPoint presentation on their product or service and a company report.
The overall winner was The Wick & Wax Company formed by students at Woodbridge School, with Memo-it, from Debenham High School as runner-up.
Memo-it also picked up the award for Best PowerPoint Demonstration, with the award for Best Company Report going to Eclipse from Thomas Mills High School in Framlingham and the Best Trade Stand award going to EqualiTea from Ipswich Schoo.
