8th May 2019 — Girls from St George’s, Ascot have been awarded Young Enterprise Company of the Year, Best Company Report and Best Customer Service at the Bracknell, Wokingham and Ascot area final.

The final, held at Easthampstead Park Conference Centre, celebrated the achievements of pupils from across the area who have set up and run a company over this academic year as part of the Young Enterprise Company Programme, sponsored by HSBC.

Six companies from a range of local schools competed across a number of categories, including presentation, customer service, sustainability and company report, with an award for each category. Products marketed included jewellery made from sustainably sourced materials, healthy recipe cards, adhesive mobile phone credit card holders and sustainable tote bags.

St George’s company, Cosmo, who sold laptop cases, came away with the award for Company of the Year after the judges were particularly impressed with their teamwork. The company also landed the award for Best Presentation, while other companies from St George’s received the Best Company Report and Best Customer Service shields.

Speaking of their achievement, the Cosmo board of directors said “The Young Enterprise experience has been a massive learning curve, and something we will always be proud to have done. We never imagined getting this far and are looking forward to competing in the Berkshire County final.”

Cosmo will now go on to represent the Bracknell, Wokingham and Ascot Area at the Young Enterprise Berkshire County Final in Reading on Tuesday 14 May.
