Institution seeks to reward firms for encouraging youngsters

Nominations for the Institution on Civil Engineers’ Company Award are now open for businesses in the Yorkshire and Humber region.

They are designed to reward the company that has done the most to encourage young people to study science and engineering subjects, and start a career in civil engineering.

The Director of ICE Yorkshire and Humber, Penny Marshall, pictured, said: “Civil engineering businesses in our region do so much to promote our profession, and to develop the young people who join the industry, so I am delighted that we can honour those who do the most. We look forward to receiving nominations from all sizes of company, small and large, and are confident that the nominees will be of a very high standard.”

Nominations should recognise companies providing ICE Ambassadors for school events and careers fairs, promoting the ICE or STEMNET Ambassador scheme, development of employees, or engaging with and supporting schools, youth centres and groups.

The award will be presented alongside the Institution’s New Ambassador and Special Recognition Awards at its annual gala dinner, in Sheffield next March. Applications will be judged by a panel of three or more independent experts, including senior representatives of the ICE’s regional education team.

A panel of independent experts will be appointed by ICE to judge the submissions, including senior members of their education team.

Businesses wishing to be considered for the award should sent a short submission along with any supporting information to ICE Yorkshire and Humber, Sheffield Chamber of Commerce & Industry, Suites 5&6, Albion House, Savile Street, Sheffield, S4 7UD, before Friday the 29th of January 2016.
