TWO local high schools competed in the finals of the East of England Make Your Mark Challenge.

Teams from Caister High and Flegg High battled it out in the regional final held at Ipswich Town Football Club.

Twenty teams of pupils aged between 14 and 16 from schools had to impress a panel of judges on this year's competition theme of creating an entrepreneurial idea inspired by the Olympic and Paralympic values. A team from St Peter's School, Huntingdon came top on the day.

The Caister team were Jack Hyatt, Stuart Pearce, Liam Cosgrove, James Dyble, Karis Griffith and Justine Clifton. Their business idea was to create Helix World, an online adventure game for schools through which students would learn about the nations and cultures of the world as well as athletes and sports and complete challenges.

The Flegg team were Abi Vandebulk, Holly Atkins, Heidi Stokes, Lucinda Webb and Sophie Plater. Their business idea, Globandz, featured a pair of friendship bracelets; a gold bracelet with a USB port that would display downloaded messages about friendship and equality, and a silver bracelet, which could be swapped.
