Oswestry pupils win national STEM competition star on radio
3rd Form girls Amelie, Axana, Lucia, Lucy and Sonia have won a national competition organised by E.ON by writing, producing and recording a radio advert to inspire young people to take up STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths).
Their ad was chosen as one of two winners from over 50 entries because the pupils impressed the judges with their creative approach to key messages about STEM subjects.
As part of their prize, the girls spent a morning at local radio station, Signal 107, where they had the opportunity to re-record their advert in a professional studio! The girls and E.ON representatives were interviewed by Radio Shropshire about the experience and the advert has been played regularly on Signal 107 along with being available to listen to on E.ON’s YouTube channel.
Billie-Jean Poole, Senior Community Relations Executive at E.ON, said: “We were so impressed with the standard of entries for the competition and how creative the radio ads were, it was really tough to pick just two winners.
“The messages and information the pupils managed to incorporate into the commercials was really inspiring and it was clear to see how passionate the pupils are about encouraging others to take an interest in STEM subjects. We hope the pupils enjoyed producing the ads as much as we enjoyed listening to them!”
