The Design Museum announces the winner of their 10th Design Ventura competition

Twynham School in Dorset has been announced as the overall winner of the Design Museum’s national design and enterprise challenge for schools 2019. 

Now in its tenth year, Design Ventura brings the business of design to life for students aged 13-16 by challenging them to develop a new creative product for the Design Museum Shop. The project is a partnership between the Design Museum and Deutsche Bank’s global youth engagement programme, Born to Be. 

The overall winner was selected from a shortlist of ten school teams who pitched their concept to a panel of leading design and business experts at a special pitching event last year. Over three hundred secondary schools across the UK and beyond participated in this year’s programme.

The winning team will work with professional designers to develop and manufacture their product for sale in the Design Museum Shop this summer.
