Young Consumer National Final 2016

After winning the Kent and South East Regional Final earlier this year, Wrotham’s team of four sixth form students headed to London for the National Final of the Young Consumer of the Year competition. The Young Consumers of the Year is a unique competition, involving hundreds of schools and pupils across the country, who want to be part of the challenge to become the nation’s top Young Consumers of the Year 2016. This competition is run by the Trading Standards Advise and Education Centre and is open to students who are under 18 years of age. It covers a wide range of consumer related topics such as Consumer legislation; Europe and Travel; Personal Finance and Consumer Rights and Responsibilities.

 

In advance of the National Final the team of Jordan Austin, Jack Codling, Bryony Mott and Megan Storey  have spent many lunchtimes and also three days of intensive days of study to research and prepare for the competition.

 

The Wrotham team had a very successful first day in the three team challenges, gaining full marks for team work and initiative. On the second day of competition, which focused upon a University Challenge style quiz, the team from Scotland were clear winners, but the team from Wrotham competed strongly to gain 2nd place overall in the competition.

 

Through their 2nd place overall in this prestigious National Final, Jordan, Jack, Bryony and Megan should be very proud to have represented Wrotham School at the highest level. In addition they have gained a massive amount of knowledge surrounding their rights and responsibilities as well as an experience which they will be able to use in their future University and employment applications.
