Young Thinker of the Year

Congratulations to Rose Farquharson who emerged victorious and has been crowned Shrewsbury University Centre’s Darwin Festival “Young Thinker of the Year” after an excellent presentation on Thursday night. Her pitch involved a proposal called “i-smile” – a new way to promote mental health.

She won £250 for the school as well as the title, and this modest but talented young academic/musician/ sportswoman later featured on Friday night’s “Midlands Today”. Here is her presentation (slightly abbreviated) for you to enjoy!


In the meantime, go to to see her advertising the Festival.
