The Young Innovator Competition
The Young Innovator Competition is held annually at the Town Hall in June or July. It is for 15 to 17 year olds from Brimsham Green, Chipping Sodbury and Yate International Academy. Each year we have about 60 students entering, and receive very positive feedback.
We continued to support the Green Power project at Chipping Sodbury School and, in particular, the Rotary Racer car.
We support a ‘Young Chef’ competition at both Chipping Sodbury and Brimsham Green Schools.
A significant project is Youth Speaks, involving Chipping Sodbury and Brimsham Green Schools, both collaborating enthusiastically. Working with teachers from both schools. we have developed a programme that introduces young people to debating, a skill that is put to the test in a public competition.
