THE REGIONAL final of the Rotary Young Persons Award for Design and Innovation took place at Bromsgrove School with three of the judges coming from Droitwich Rotary Club.

The line-up featured past president Roger Harris, current president Helen Karakashian and secretary Sandy Laird who was the head judge.

By the end of the contest, first prize went to Becky Randle from King Edward’s VI Five Ways for her very well thought out multi-task desk specifically designed for children with autism.

Second went to Jay Greaves from Moorlands Sixth Form College who designed a snake shaped wall light for a child’s bedroom with a chargeable, detachable head to be used as a torch.

And third prize went to Kacper Wozniak from Painsley Catholic College – that design was a winch with specialist universal fittings for putting up a sail on a surf board.

All three items had been put into successful use before entering the competition.

Becky receives a cheque for £300, which was handed over by District Governor John Crawford, who was born in Bromsgrove.

A Droitwich Rotary Club spokesperson said the competition was organised to promote the importance of invention and design for the future of Britain.

“The 21 finalists covered a wide range of innovative designs showing a high standard of well researched projects. With talented young people like these the future of innovation, design and development in our country is very promising indeed.”
