More than 60 students at Witchford Village College were challenged to design an Instagram post for a pizza advert with hashtags as part of the project.

They then had to pitch their ideas to their peers and create a campaign for a 30-day challenge aimed at their age group to inspire health and wellbeing.

A spokesman said: “Great resilience was shown when students had to stand up and present to each other, each taking a role in the process.

“We are very grateful to the representatives from the project, they are very inspiring people with interesting experiences to share about their work.”

Students also had to include an idea for an app, an advertising campaign, logo and strap line and then sell it to their audience.

They were split into ten groups and had to work collaboratively with input from everyone in the group to formulate ideas.

Creating the Future is a partnership project with Festival Bridge working with the Arts Council to connect young people with art and culture.
