School pupils have won a national short film competition encouraging young people to think about politics. Vote at 16, a three-minute film made by three Year 11 students at Leicester Grammar School, in Great Glen, was judged the best film in the secondary schools category of Light, Camera, Parliament! 2013. The competition, for secondary schools and primary schools, asked pupils: "If you could make one law, what would it be?" The team from Leicester Grammar School argued that people should be able to vote from the age of 16 so they could have a say on things that affect their lives. Young film-makers Harry Ashman, Jeremy Worsfold and Harvey Kingsley-Elton travelled to Westminster to pick up trophy before the House of Commons' Easter recess. Natalie Hunt, the school's external relations officer, said: "Well done boys! As well as having their film showed at Parliament, they also received a Lights, Camera, Parliament! trophy. "Each member of the team and Leicester Grammar School also received a film-making kit."
