The winner of this National Canine Defence League competition was 12-year-old Laura Tillson from Basingstoke, who was awarded a trip to Disneyland Paris. Entrants were required to design a poster, which would increase awareness of the serious responsibilities of dog ownership.


For the second year running, a team of lower sixth form students from Friends' School Lisburn, Co. Antrim, has won this competition run for 16 to 19-year-olds by the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants. Jude Bunting, Jacqui Kinghan, Mark Stevenson and Jenny Thompson provided a business solution for a fictitious European car manufacturer hit by recession, needing to find new markets outside western Europe. They won a trip to New York and a trophy.
