Barnsley Academy young entrepreneurs take Product Design Award at local enterprise challenge

A team of young enterpreneurs from Barnsley Academy made their mark at this year’s ‘I Know I Can Big Challenge’ competition, winning the award for best product design. 

Run by Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council, the local enterprise event challenged pupils from primary and secondary schools across the area to develop and run their own businesses.

At Barnsley Academy, over 90 Year 10 students took part over a six-month period, with three teams making it through to last month’s finals at Barnsley Civic, where they had to pitch their ideas to a Dragon’s den style panel of judges.

Receiving the Product Design Award were Crate-Ives – a quintet comprising Amalie, Laura, Lucy, Jared and Tori, who produced their own amazing hand decorated boxes and crates.

Also attending the finals were Make and Shake – a threesome making milk shakes, with all profits being donated to Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice, and Scribble Art, which produced colouring books. 

Commenting on the students’ success, Julie Broomhead, Head of Business and Computing at Barnsley Academy, said: 

“A big well done to all of our extremely talented and hard-working finalists - they’re a real credit to Barnsley Academy and a great inspiration to all of us.”
