THE next generation of technology wizards have managed to sweep the board with prizes at Warrington's creative and digital expo.

Year 10 Birchwood High School students, Sarah Grant, Jakub Kuczynski, Kian Lee and Krisztina Takacs each won a brand new drone from MDS Global at the event held at the Pyramid Centre.

Organized by The Pledge, the day gave youngsters the opportunity to hear from a selection of speakers about their jobs in the industry and the training and steps they took to get there.

They also spoke of the fantastic opportunities in the creative and digital world that are out there for young people in the north west.

Dave Sutton, head of business, computing and social communication at Birchwood Community High School, said: "Thank you to the organisers of the Expo; it was a great opportunity for our year 10 learners to start considering possible pathways into this exciting career channel.

"They certainly made the best of the morning talking to many industry professionals and were well rewarded for their efforts!"
