Henry Boot Construction have supported this year's BiG Challenge Awards 2017, sponsoring the Best Final Report Award which was presented to the winners by Employment & Skills Manager, Adeana Raper.

The Awards are an annual event as part of The BiG Enterprise programme which has been created to teach young adults the importance of entrepreneurial skills.

Teams from each educational establishment were provided with £25 from which to start and grow a business of their choice, with prizes awarded to the most successful business. Whilst profit was important, judges also considered ideas and methods used together with their teamwork and enthusiasm.

The Final Report Award went to a group of students from Bradfield School, whose business Snapshot, specialised in modern and useful phone accessories and innovative equipment to assist in taking selfies.

"This event showcases young talent in Sheffield. All those taking part should be very proud of all their achievements during the challenge. As a city, we must continue to encourage young entrepreneurs and their ideas."
