Young Enterprise has been bringing young people from across Belfast together to explore opportunities in the food and drink industry.
Those at the industry masterclass, supported by the United States Consulate, heard from Young Enterprise business volunteer and founder of successful local food and drink enterprise, Oscar Woolley, of Suki Tea. Along with Citigroup's Kyle Close, he formed a judging panel. The event was also attended by the US Consul General Gregory Burton, Belfast Lord Mayor Mairtin O Muilleoir and Minister for Employment and Learning Dr Stephen Farry.
130 students aged 15-17 attended, from Victoria College, De La Salle College, St Mary's Christian Brothers Grammar School, Dominican College, Our Lady's and St Patrick's College, and RBAI.
US Consul General Mr Burton commended the students for their efforts. "From the quality of contributions, I am confident Northern Ireland's future innovators and entrepreneurs will not be in short supply," he said.
