FRANTIC RESPONSES to the Cleverclogs autumn term tie break question last week have revealed joint winners in the individual competition after 10 weeks of enthusiastic competition.
Richard Turner of consultant BOMEL and Barry Johnson of Kier Engineering Services took top honours after bouncing answers back to the Cleverclogs hotline at record speed.
The autumn term team competition was equally well contested, with Arup's SMD team winning through.
All win Amazon gift vouchers worth £125 plus, of course, places in the grand Cleverclogs final which will be held at the Institution of Mechanical Engineers in London in two weeks time.
This grand live final will be hosted by question master and NCE editor Antony Oliver, and will see the individual and team winners from all three Cleverclogs terms battle it out head to head.
The series of timed and quick-fire rounds will discover the overall Cleverclogs champion for 2004.
Great prizes are up for grabs thanks to Cleverclogs sponsor ACO Technologies. The individual winner will walk away with a spectacular holiday package to the US.
Each of the top team members will receive flights to the States but the team will also win a £3000 bursary to pass on to an engineering student of their choice. The winning team will be asked to work with ACO and NCE to identify a university and student to back for a year.
A limited number of places are available to watch the live final which starts at 12noon on 15 December. Contact Charlotte Irons at ACO Technology on (01462) 816666 to book a place.
