Students from a Lichfield school have been recognised for their entrepreneurial skills.
Youngsters from Netherstowe School were given a Young Enterprise Journey Award for their efforts to creat ICE, a company producing wallet and purse-sized ‘in case of emergency’ cards and key rings containing engraved contact details.
Among the judges was Sue Arnold, Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner for Staffordshire, who also handed over the award at Burton Albion’s Pirelli Stadium.
“It was an honour to attend the finals as a judge and present the Journey Award to Netherstowe School. I was very impressed with all who made it to the final, their hard work and dedication is truly admirable.
“The Young Enterprise programme is a fantastic way for young people to develop a whole host of skills, both business and personal. It’s so important that we support and encourage the entrepreneurs and young people in our county so that they can achieve.”
