A TEENAGER has won a Rotary young designer competition.
Nicholas Mainstone, a Year 11 pupil at Casterton Business and Enterprise College, won the first prize in the Rotary Club of Stamford Burghley’s young designer competition.
The competition was open to pupils in Year 11 across the club’s area with the challenge of designing a commemorative item for the Olympics.
Nicholas’ design will be entered into the Rotary district final, which will be held at Leicester Grammar School tomorrow. If he wins the district final, he will go onto the national final.
President of the Rotary club Clive Adkin said: “We are amazed at the range and quality of designs submitted from our schools. They demonstrated innovation and quality and all entrants should be proud of their excellent work.”
Graphic products teacher at the school Leahanne Ditchburn said: “Nicholas has an obvious flair for design which is evident in the product he produced.”
Second prize went to Isobell Rewett, from Stamford Queen Eleanor School.
