Eight local high schools (Blyth-Jex, Acle, Thorpe St Andrew, Reepham, Sprowston, Hellesdon, Taverham and Broadland) have accepted Broadland DC's invitation to enter teams who will spend the day role-playing as the senior management team of a fictitious local authority - Wideacre DC.
Chairman David Thompson will be presenting the prizes - a state-of-the-art computer (sponsored by Fox IT) and cash prizes for second and third places to spend on books and sports equipment.
'We're delighted to have these young people taking part in our very successful annual event,' said Colin Bland, chief executive of Broadland DC. 'We hope that through this innovative event, we can outline the extent of council services for our residents and highlight the opportunities for involvement, at whatever age, that are available to potential voters and employees.'
