SHEFFIELD Hallam University Chancellor Lord Robert Winston is urging science students to sign up for the new Young Yorkshire Scholar contest.

The 17 to 21-year-olds chosen will be able to attend an exciting residential programme to be held in London in July, with young people coming from all over the globe.

Lord Winston is to be one of many speakers at the London International Youth Forum, with his address set to close the event.

The Yorkshire scheme was set up after it was found the region was vastly under-represented at the forum.
