From classroom to boardroom - talented Worcester trio seek to make it big in business

Malvern Gazette: (4369423) (4369423)

A TALENTED trio of young entrepreneurs have put their business brains in gear with a competition to showcase the county's photographic flair.

Rising stars William Kelly, 12, Matt MacDonald and Rhys Clarke, 13, all pupils of King's School in Worcester, hope they will be hired and not fired after launching a photographic competition. Their money making scheme is part of their work for "Young Enterprise", the United Kingdom’s largest business and enterprise education charity. Every year the charity helps 250,000 young people learn about business and the world of work in the classroom under the guidance of a network of 5,000 volunteers from 3,500 companies.

For the competition itself the team say the photograph itself can be of anything but should show the creativity of the photographer.

The idea is for them to take £10 and make it "grow" as much as they can during March. Rewards are given for the highest profit, most inspiring individual, best group and greatest social impact.

Entries for the competition must be submitted by Wednesday, March 26. The entry fee is £2.50 of which 50p per entry goes to St Richard's Hospice in Wildwood Drive, Worcester. The competition is open to all ages.

Cheques should be made payable to The King’s School, Worcester (Young Enterprise) and posted to

The Photographic Competition, The King’s School Worcester, 5 College Green, Worcester, WR1 2LL.

Entries must include a name, telephone number, email and address. The first prize is a day out on a photographic workshop with Going Digital which is worth £75 (donated by Going Digital West Midlands and Cotswold region), second prize is a Belkin TuneCast Auto Live (which allows you to play your music without cables through your car FM radio) and the third prize is a head mount suitable for GoPro cameras

There may be more prizes which would be announced on their Facebook page (search "The Photographic Competition").

Prizes have been donated by Going Digital and PC World. The competition will be judged by Jon Essex of Squareye Television and a Worcester News photographer.

I saw the Young Enterprise students selling on the High Street in Worcester yesterday. What great idea, get kids to experience what is waiting for them after education. Well done Young Enterprise, keep it up
