The national competition last year had a Scarborough winner – Will Ellis, a former Scalby School pupil who was a bench joiner apprentice for Peter Thompsons of Sheriff Hutton.
The contest is designed to find the finest trade-apprentices or full-time apprentice students in the nation. One winner will take home a prize package worth £10,000 to help them to step on to the career ladder.
The most impressive entries from the region will be selected to go head-to-head at a national final at Google headquarters in London.
Will said: “I was completely shocked when they announced that I had won the Screwfix Trade Apprentice competition last year! Winning has enabled me to pursue my dream and
