Joint Dulwich College & Sydenham High School Young Enterprise Teams Win Awards

Last Updated on : 16th May 2018

Young Enterprise teams take home ‘Best Company Report’, ‘Most Creative Product’ and ‘Citi Environmental’ Awards

At the end of April, the first of two joint Dulwich College & Sydenham High School Young Enterprise teams took part in the Company of the Year Central London Finals at Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner, London Bridge.

Having already progressed through the first round of the competition before Easter, team ‘Elastalid’, who sell silicone lids which stretch to fit most container sizes, were competing against six other Central London companies for one spot in the London Final in June. The team were judged and scrutinised on every area of the business, from their Trade Stand to their company report. With competition fierce, the team secured two awards on the night – Best Company Report and Most Creative Product – agonisingly finishing second and so progressing no further in the finals.

A week later, the second Dulwich College/Sydenham High School team ‘Recyclabag’ took part in the East London Finals at Citigroup, Canary Wharf. The team really had to raise their game at this level, and they did so remarkably, delivering an excellent presentation and standing up to the scrutiny of the judges in the interviews. Recyclabag took home the prestigious Citi Environmental Award for their handmade washbags made from 100% recycled materials, but despite this success, didn’t progress any further.

Both teams will continue to trade until July and would love to hear from you if you’re interested in buying one of their products – please contact Mr Clancy on clancyrd@dulwich.org.uk
