In May seven Design and Technology students were entered into the Lincolnshire Young Designer of the Year competition, three Y13 Product Design and Textiles students and four Y11 Graphics Products students. There were over 60 entries but all of our students were invited to exhibit their work at the National Centre for Craft and Design. The private viewing was held on Friday where they announced the prize winners. There were four awards on offer in addition to the overall winner. Whilst two of the prizes were awarded to a student from another school for his pool/beach lifeguard manikin holder I am delighted to say that the other three prizes on offer were awarded to our students.
Megan Francis (Product Design and Textiles) Year 13, won the award for ‘Artistic Excellence’ for her coat and her sewing box. She is going on to study fashion design at University. James Scott-Murphy (Y11 Graphics Products) won the award for ’Innovation’ for his architectural model of an active house, they were particularly impressed by his sustainable design concept. James is going on to study Product Design at A Level. The overall winner was Lewis Washington (Y11 Graphics Products) who was announced ‘Lincolnshire Young Designer of the Year 2015’ for his architectural model of a car dealership which showed excellent design, development and realisation of his model which displayed superb attention to detail. Lewis is also studying Product Design next year and wants to pursue a career in architecture. These students, alongside Fraser Kearsey, Billy Toulson, Samuel Groves and Brandon Chapman who also exhibited their work, have worked exceptionally hard this year and are worthy winners of their awards.
