Students sparkled in Young Enterprise Isle of Wight

Students from Christ the King College will be travelling to London to compete in the Young Enterprise regional finals after winning the Isle of Wight heat.

On Wednesday, May 8, the Island’s Young Enterprise teams, who have been running their own businesses since September 2012, gathered at Quay Arts, Newport, to field questions from the judging panel at their trade stands before delivering their final presentations.

Awards were given in six individual categories before Spark, the company from Christ the King College, scooped the prestigious ‘Company of the Year Award’.
