Any S3 pupil who is interested can apply to sign up for the award. This is a voluntary activity run by the Knox Academy  it involves a significant time commitment by the student but the rewards are substantial. 

If a student is interested they are asked to submit a by edubuzz email to Dr Lyon (vlyon@edubuzz.org) or in person to Dr Lyon, Mr Boyle or Philip Gilholm stating why you want to take part in the award and what you could bring to your team.
