PUPILS from two Ealing schools have landed a place in the west London finals of the Young Enterprise Awards next Thursday.
Greenford High School's Wear the Freedom firm won best company and best report while a team from Ellen Wilkinson Girls' School, Perfect Scribbles, took the runners-up prize.
Now the two, both selling customised T-shirts, will go head-to-head in the regional final for a place in June's London final.
Ivor Lobo, education liaison officer at Thames Valley University (TVU), Young Enterprise London's partner for west London, said: "Every young entrepreneur who took part demonstrated creativity, thought and passion in their ventures. We wish the winning teams all the best in the next round.
"It is a privilege for TVU to support Young Enterprise London which increases student's future career prospects and we hope to welcome some of them on our groundbreaking enterprise and entrepreneurship foundation degree."
Hundreds of schools take part in the Young Enterprise company programme every year. Each company elects a board of directors, raises share capital and then markets, finances and sells its product or service in its community.
With the support of teachers and business volunteers students learn through hands-on experience what it takes to be an entrepreneur and how to run their own company.
