Innovation Awards 2022

A look at the 2022 Innovation Awards Ceremony

Students, teachers and parents from schools and colleges across the country gathered at the Pierhead to find out the winners of the best inventions in the A level, AS and GCSE categories. The ceremony was held on the 13th of December and was attended by Jeremy Miles MS, Minister for Education and Welsh Language and Ian Morgan WJEC Chief Executive. Benjamin Morris from King Henry VIII Comprehensive, Abergavenny, championed both the A level and Overall Winner categories with his creation, a toe protection device for cricketers. The judges were extremely impressed with his testing and development and saw much commercial viability in his product. Further information on each winner is available from our latest news section.
