STUDENTS from Painsley Catholic College impressed judges in the annual Rotary Club Graphics Competition which was held this year at Denstone College on 24th June.
In a close contest, first prize was awarded to Robert Barlow, second to Harry Shufflebottom and third to Jack Oldham, all from Painsley Catholic College.
Judges were particularly impressed by the attention to detail and quality of construction of the board games designed by the students.
All the games were designed for the Controlled Assessment section of their Graphic Products GCSE. Mr Robert Lilley, teacher of Graphic Products at Painsley, said: "I am delighted that students here are achieving a commercially viable quality of outcome and that this has been recognised by professionals working outside the school environment."
Kacper Wozniak, a Painsley student studying at the Moorlands Sixth Form College, won second place in the Rotary Young Person's Award for Innovation held on the same evening.
He has taken his wind-surf sail winch to the final in Bromsgrove on July 6.
A college spokesman said: "Painsley has had a great deal of success in this competition over the last few years and we wish him the best for the final and his future studies in nautical engineering at Southampton University."
