AMDCS have won £1,000 in the PwC Opportunity Challenge, which took place during a dark (k)night at the Gosta Green on Tuesday 28th November. This was the Aston and Birmingham City heat of a national general knowledge quiz, giving student clubs and societies a fantastic (four) opportunity to win some additional funding.
Following the win, AMDCS President Chris Omatsola-Morgan said “I'm over the moon about winning the £1000 for the Marvel and DC Society. Hopefully this means that when we go to watch films in the cinema, the discounted tickets are no longer limited to just our society members!”
He went on to say “I don't have enough words to praise Sadie, Izzy and Jordan who did incredibly well to win! The team is very excited to be going to London, and I have no doubt they'll be top contenders for the £5000 prize.”
After a winter (soldier) break, AMDCS will go on to compete against the other 25 heat winners in the national final (to be held at an exclusive event in PwC's More London office in February), to battle it out for an additional prize of £5,000!
Congratulations to AMDCS on their incredible (hulk) performance from everyone at Aston Students’ Union, and best of luck for the final!
