The Cork City Schools Enterprise Programme run by the Local Enterprise Office Cork City announced the winners of their new Business Ideas competition which was open to both junior and senior cycle second-level students in Cork City. Having received over 550 entries from 16 schools across Cork City this years winners of the inaugural category were 5th year student Olivia Dupuy from St. Vincents Secondary School and 2nd year student Bryan Little from Deerpark CBS.

The senior cycle winner Olivia Dupuy devised the idea of a special alarm feature installed on power sockets which makes a noise when items such as laptops or phones are plugged in without the power switch being turned on.

The junior cycle winner Bryan Little developed the idea of a special straw with a pump and sensor which can be used by the disabled. Bryans straw senses when a person puts their lips on the straw activating the pump to dispense the liquid.
