Friday 9th July saw the Leap team deliver a very successful Dott Cornwall Eco Design Challenge Awards hosted at Tremough Campus by Cornish education consultant Will Coleman.
St Ives School’s plan to retrofit their 1970’s art block with large roof windows and photovoltaic panels was chosen as overall winner by a panel of five judges; Andrea Siodmok, Programme Director of Dott Cornwall; Benedict Arora from NESTA; TV personality Dick Strawbridge; Lesley Morris of the Design Council and Matt Barton from Cornwall Council, (pictured above with the winning eco team: Calum Parson, Bridget Allen, Billy Goulden, Alastair Manley and Daniel Hopson). The Eco judges take aim at one of the finalist\’s presentations! …Don\’t worry, they asked them to!
St Ives beat off stiff competition from the five other finalists: Wadebridge School, Sir James Smith’s Community School, Bodmin College, Penrice Community College and Budehaven Community School to win £6,700 to give their plans a kick start towards reality.
The Eco team at Leap Media would like to congratulate all the finalists and thank all the participants, their teachers and the schools for their ongoing support.

The Dott Cornwall Eco Design Challenge Exhibition had exhibits from all six finalists along with exhibits from Dott07 and some other Cornish entrants.
Host Will Coleman and Dr. Jo Henley offer feedback to one of the schools practicing their presentation.
Part of St Ives’ success was down to their exuberant presentation that not only entertained, but contained cold, hard, facts about what they could achieve if they won the competition.
One of the three winners, Wadebridge School, also gave a very entertaining presentation of their CycleSafe idea. They won £4,000 for their trouble.
Here’s Sir James Smith’s School receiveing their cheque for £2,000, trophy and certificate for their iCan project.
