The Prescotian Webzine

After seven very successful years in Young Enterprise, and with a total of nineteen companies, 2001 saw Prescot School achieve its highest accumulation of awards in the programme. Always successful - the school has produced the Best Overall Company in Knowsley six times - this year one of the groups was chosen to represent Merseyside at the Young Enterprise European Trade Fair in Stavonger, Norway.
Matrix 2001, led by Managing Director, Jornes McKenzie, were chosen to go after submitting on application form and a business plan to the Knowsley YE Area Board. They impressed the board with their product - on up-dated version of the traditional game, Nine Man's Morris, which they turned into a travel game using a CD case and re-named Matrix.
They spent a week in Norway during which time they attended the Trade Fair, visited a petroleum museum and, in the case of the Managing Director, got to meet the Crown Prince of Norway, Prince Haakon. James was actually picked to represent the whole of the United Kingdom!
The company rounded off their YE year by winning the Best Product Award at the Knowsley Area Board Presentation Evening. High Flyers, the school's second company picked up the award for Best Presentation, whilst the third group, Daydream, were awarded the Best Display trophy, Best Overall Company and their Managing Director, Dan Taylor, was judged Achiever of the Year.
