Cash up for grabs to entrepreneurial students

BIG ideas could win one creative youngster £1000 tonight – at a Dearne Valley College brainstorming session.

The Manvers-based college has teamed up with Hallam FM for the Grand Ideas project, which challenges youngsters to come up with schemes they feel they could create – if only they had £1,000.

The final will take place at the campus tonight (Thursday) as part of an open night that runs from 4.30-7.30pm.

The person deemed to have the best idea will then walk away with the £1,000 prize that will, hopefully, help to turn their ideas into reality.

Course tutors and support staff will be on hand that evening to offer advice and information about a variety of vocational courses, apprenticeships and foundation degrees.
