FOAM picture frames and bags made from old shirts are just a few of the award-winning ideas devised by Huntingdonshire teenagers.

Winner of the district's Young Enterprise competition was Supernova, from Kimbolton School who, along with their shirt bags, also designed place settings made from recycled forks.

Coming in a close second was EDZ, from St Neots Community College, who scooped five out of the eight awards, including best young businesswoman, won by Camilla Horner, and businessman of the year, won by Shaun Northover.

The company makes balls stuffed with sawdust that have grass growing out of the top that is made to look like hair.

Chris Newsome, director of asset management for Anglian Water and chairman of the young enterprise board, said: "The competition was once again of a high quality and we have high hopes for the companies progressing further in the national competition."

The two teams of sixth formers will tomorrow (Thursday) go forward to represent the county in the finals being held at Robinson College in Cambridge.
