Zara Brownless has been named as winner of Lord Sugars Young Apprentice.
The 16-year-old A-Level student from Hertfordshire beat 17-year-old James McCullagh in the finale of the second series of the BBC One business competition.
Explaining his decision, Lord Sugar told Brownless:
"Zara, you're calm, articulate and you look to be in control of your emotions, which is a good thing when you're in business. It was a hugely tough decision, but Zara really showed wisdom and clarity far beyond her years."
Zara said of her win:
"It's incredible to be leaving this as the winner. I honestly never thought I would actually make it this far.
"The whole experience has been amazing. I've taken more from it than I ever thought I would and it has genuinely been incredible."
For the final task, the two young business hopefuls were challenged to create, design and market a new online video game.
Brownless creation was Piggy Panic, which featured a pig trying to escape from a butcher, while McCullagh's Crazy Cabinet game had a political theme with the player controlling the Prime Minister.
Brownless was praised by Nick Hewer who said that she "did a very professional job".
She won £25,000 to be used to further her fledgling business career.
