<p><b><font size="4">National MTA Design Awards </font></b></p> <p><font face="Calibri,Calibri" size="3"><font face="Calibri,Calibri" size="3">We are delighted to announce that </font></font><b><font size="3">Aashi Srivastava</font></b><font face="Calibri,Calibri" size="3"><font face="Calibri,Calibri" size="3">, Year 13, was formally recognised for her excellent Product Design A Level work at a National competition on Wednesday 4th July. The MTA awards are a national competition aimed at promoting the best and brightest new and emerging British designers. The standard of entries displayed at the awards show was very high - it had to be, as there were hundreds of entries but only the top 6 made it to the show to present their work. Aashi was awarded 2nd place for her design of a chair attachment that helps children with Cerebral Palsy become more independent in school. Well done Aashi, we're so proud of you!
