“Yet another huge number of submissions – 80!! – from our West Midlands schools.  It was incredibly tough for the judges to decide on the final 22 to go through to the next round.  Another year of creative Big Ideas, and yet more indication that if we can just give our young people guidance, a voice, and a platform from which to speak, the future could be in safe hands.  I can’t wait to see the regional finalists present in May!”
