Designing for the future; YOUNG PERSONS INNOVATION AWARDS.

MORE than 130 students from schools in Coventry showed off their design talents at the annual Rotary Club Young Persons Award for Innovation presentation.

The event, at Elm Bank Teachers' Centre in Cheylesmore, attracted record entries from 14 schools across the city and left a lasting impression on judges from the five Coventry Rotary clubs, which sponsored the competition.

In all 133 GCSE and A level students won prizes with designs based on food, textiles, graphic products, electronic/system/control, resistant materials and A level work.

Judges also selected designs by students Chris Loynes, Matthew Wishart, Gemma Lole, Alistair Newman and Darren Hall, for special innovations award.

The five designs, which were chosen because they showed innovation and potential for commercial production, will be entered into the Midland final, which takes place in Dudley's Merry Hill Shopping Centre on July 11 where winners could receive up to pounds 2,000 in cash prizes.

The finalists, along with 15 Rotary Club award prize winners, will also have the chance to go on a week's all-expenses paid residential business training course at Pershore College.

Cllr George Duggins, chairman of the education and cultural affairs policy team, said the students' work will now be on display at Elm Bank for two weeks.

He said the exhibition was to celebrate the achievements of students and teachers from the schools involved.

Cllr Duggins said: "The innovation awards are an excellent demonstration of the talent that exists in our schools.

"Some of the students' ideas are very impressive, and the standard of the work is of a very high quality.

"I hope that people will take the time to come back and look at the exhibition and get a glimpse of the future."
