The competition, which was judged by representatives from all of Melton’s Rotary clubs, was on the hunt for youngsters to showcase their design ideas and skills.

The winner of the Design 16 to 18 year-olds category was Louis Walker.

Jake Green won the Design category for up to 16 year-olds and Tiffany Clarke won the Manufacturing Award category.

Rotarian Eric Sylt said: “All designs were well thought out and supported by extensive design studies and construction criteria - a great credit to the teaching staff and to the young people.”
