A group of New Plymouth boys' business idea has won them a national award.

The Francis Douglas Memorial College Grape Big Barrels team that competed in the Young Enterprise Scheme has won an excellence award for enterprising technology.

The Young Enterprise Scheme is a one-year programme that gives secondary students the chance to set up and run a small business.

Each team has to form a company, research and write a business plan and bring their product or service to market.

The overall winning team for this year's competition was Manurewa High School's Caring and Co which produced olive oil to raise funds to put primary school children through a Life Education Trust programme.
