Create the Trophy Winner - Samuel Bentley

This year’s iconic QEPrize trophy was selected from thousands of entries to the Create the Trophy competition. Open for the first time in 2017 to an international audience, we received an unprecedented number of entries from 32 countries worldwide.

The winning entry was designed by Samuel Bentley, 15, from Wales, who took his inspiration from the highest Welsh peak, Snowdon.

Samuel is currently studying for his GCSE’s at Ysgol Glan Clwyd in St Asaph, one of which is engineering. He also has a keen eye for drawing and design, and has previously illustrated a games manual for the local playing fields association, as well as designing the logo for his silver band.

When asked about his design, Samuel said: “I enjoy the design aspect of engineering and seeing the finished product after all of the hard work has been put in. My trophy was inspired by the great Welsh mountain, Snowdon; I think it looks like a rock face and it is an achievement to start at the bottom of Snowdon and climb to the top, just as it is an achievement to win the Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering.”
