Students from Balcarras School, have come runners up at the South West Young Enterprise County Final. The final, was held at The Flacon Hotel, Bude, Cornwall on 16th May 2024.

Seven county winning teams from Gloucestershire, Wiltshire, Devon, Cornwall, Somerset, Bristol & Dorset competed across 6 categories – Sustainability, Best Presentation, Creativity, Financial Management, Technology & Best Overall Company. The winning team was Cornwall, who had the idea of melting down bottle caps and turning this into surfboard wax. The Balcarras team did extremely well! E-Tees, came away with the technology prize and runners up trophy.

Here is a description of their product: Elevate your game with our eco-friendly tees, crafted from locally sourced recycled paper. Championing sustainability, our tees reinforce our commitment to a cleaner environment, both on and off the course. Manufactured entirely in the UK, our tees outpace the competition by biodegrading up to 3x faster, thanks to our distinctive recycled paper composite material. Redefining the stereotype around paper products, our tees are not only strong and durable but also reusable. With an innovative biodegradable dextrin binder, they match the strength of traditional bamboo and wood - no need to worry about bent or broken tees.
