Have your say

PUPILS from Portsmouth beat competition from schools in Kent and East Sussex to reach the final of the national Young Consumers of the Year competition.

Jack Finnamore, 16, William Morgan, Chris Hall and Max Jewel, all 17, from Portsmouth Grammar School won a trophy plus £100 for their school after answering the most questions on trading standards correctly.

The team will now go on to compete in the national final in Bournemouth this June.

The competition aims to educate young people on issues such as consumer rights, money and credit, and law.

Amy Forster, the city’s community trading standards officer said: ‘Competitions like this will ensure young people are savvy consumers.’
