PENISTONE Grammar School pupils were presented with special awards in recognition of their innovations and inventions to help create a greener future.

Youngsters were praised for designing a sustainable hydrogen production facility using wind and solar power by High Sheriff Award judges, and also receive a £300 cheque for their efforts.

The concept was developed and delivered by The Workwise Foundation on behalf of the High Sheriff of South Yorkshire, Professor Jaydip Ray.

Janice Richardson, co-founder and senior executive at the foundation, said: “We’re immensely proud of the creativity and enthusiasm displayed by the participating students.

“The High Sheriff Award not only fosters innovation but also promotes inclusivity and empowerment, ensuring that every student has the opportunity to thrive and contribute to a better future.”
