A GROUP of Morpeth teenagers netted the runners-up prize in the regional stage of a business contest.
Teams from across the North East travelled to St James’ Park in Newcastle for one of the heats in this year’s Coca-Cola Enterprises (CCE) Real Business Challenge, open to students aged between 13 and 15, and the contingent from King Edward VI School came second.
Pupils were mentored by CCE professionals to help develop their ideas. They then presented them to the judging panel.
Each team was given a score based on their enterprise skills, including teamwork, leadership, creativity and presentation abilities.
