Video: Book idea wins Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes Young Enterprise

A school business team from Aylesbury beat off competition from the new city and the rest of the county to win the Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes area final of the Young Enterprise competition.

Future Booster, from Sir Henry Floyd Grammar School, will represent the area in the next stage of the national competition after being judged the best overall school team out of the eight who contested the event at the Open University, in Milton Keynes, on Friday.

The team developed a careers advice book built out of real-life testimonies of hundreds of jobs, which they published, printed and are selling.

The runners up were Sterling, from The Beaconsfield School.

Two Milton Keynes teams, fashion company Vetro, from Milton Keynes Academy, and Lightning, who make puzzles on Magic Mats, from Ousedale, didn’t come away empty handed. The Ousedale team won the new media award, sponsored by Jump Off The Screen, and the Milton Keynes Academy team was runner up in two awards, for innovation, sponsored by the Open University, and best company report, sponsored by recruitment firm Expion.

Milton Keynes Academy also picked up an award for being a Young Enterprise Centre of Excellence.
