Young Consumers of the Year

The CTSI Young Consumers of the Year Competition is a unique competition for schools and youth groups in England, Scotland and Wales.

The competition is organised by the Chartered Trading Standards Institute and its Consumer Empowerment Alliance; it allows teams of four 14-17 year olds to compete in a knockout consumer quiz

Last year, WHOTS produced a revision and information pack for students to prepare for local competitions as well as the Welsh Regional Final in Cardiff on March 19th, 2015. The documents below can be downloaded by students and teachers as study guides.
