Webster’s pipped at post in finals

WEBSTER’S High School pupils were among budding business moguls from 15 regions across Scotland who took part in the glitzy final of the Young Enterprise Scotland (YES) Awards 2012 in Glasgow last Tuesday.

Team Lava had won the local heats but, on the day, were pipped at the post for the top awards.

Highland-based company Innovation from Fortrose Academy bagged six of the nine coveted titles including Best Presentation, The Marketing Society Star School Award and Link Teacher of the Year. Best Business Report, Best Trade Stand and Young Enterprise Scotland Company of the Year were also won by the group. Ayrshire team ICONIC from Belmont Academy followed closely behind winning three accolades including The Marketing Society Star School Award, Quality Scotland Organisational Excellence Award and IoD Director of the Year.

The final award - Business Advisor of the Year - was presented to Timeless, from Bo’Ness Academy in Forth Valley.
