ENTERPRISING teenagers from Guiseley School have scooped a series of awards at the area finals of a business competition.

Three teams from the school won seven of the eight awards available in the Young Enterprise Leeds and Wakefield Area Final on March 21. Two of the teams were crowned winners and runners-up and will now go on to the county final in May.

The area prize was won by Spectrum, who produced a children's story book addressing modern day social issues to teach children from a young age that it is ok to be different. The runners up were AU Gold Recruitment who have created a CV and application advisory service for young school leavers. The third Guiseley team Sense produced a range of re-cycled candles and won the Best Teamwork and Communications award.

Guiseley school press officer Tom Morris said: "All three teams have been outstanding since they began their companies way back in October 2016. They attended trade fairs arranged by Young Enterprise on Sundays and even more amazing is that they have gone to local trade that they found themselves.

"AU Gold even set up their own consultancy work shop evening in a local cafe. These students are in Year 12 and have their own academic pressures to cope with, so the fact that they have seen these projects through to fruition and given up so much of their time to successfully run their own business enterprises is both remarkable and commendable."
