Young Consumers of the Year Competition

Islington’s Young Consumer of the Year Competition 2016

The quiz, part of a national competition, teaches young people about their rights when buying goods and services, how to make healthy and “green” choices, look after their money, stay safe at home and on-line and work together as a team.  It is a great “extra” for students to add to CVs and college application forms.

For 2016 teams from schools, youth services and voluntary groups will be able to take part in an exciting on-line competition to choose the top Islington youth team.  The team with the highest score in the on-line quiz will have the chance to represent Islington at the London Regional Final.

For more information on the quiz and how to register please go the website of the Chartered Trading Standards Institute who run the competition.

London Regional Final 2015 

The 2015 final took place on Friday 20 March at City Hall.  Two teams from Islington competed against schools and youth clubs from across London.  A team of Islington Police Cadets made it to the last four but lost out to a team from Greenwich.  The National Final took place in London in June and eight teams from across the UK took part in a series of practical challenges followed by a Treasure Hunt around Westminster.  The top four competed in a final quiz the following day in the House of Commons where local author and comedian Charlie Higson was the question master. All teams then spent an afternoon cruising the Thames.

For the 2-day event in 2016 all meals and accommodation will be provided for the regional finalists and teacher/youth leader.

Are you interested in submitting a team for 2016?  Teams should be made up of 4 students aged 14-17.  The 2016 YCOY event will be launched in September 2015.
