I’m an Engineer – you’ve decided to let BECKY go

We’ve counted, checked and rechecked the votes since yesterday and now it’s game over for… BECKY This leaves just USAID and ROBIN to fight it out for the £500 prize tomorrow. What would they both do with the money, you ask? Usaid says “I would like to setup an Engineering Prize for some of London’s struggling schools” and Robin says “I hope to donate it to the CCFE Charitable Fund, should I be lucky enough to win”. The competition is hotting up and the engineers are pulling out all the stops to secure your all important final vote. Only you decide who gets the £500 prize. Not your teacher, not the other engineers. Ask them more questions to help you decide who should win – ASK And most importantly vote NOW to make sure your favourite engineer walks off with the prize – VOTE May the best engineer win.
