A panel of trustees and staff have shortlisted the strongest applications to go through to the judging day. The shortlisted candidates will be invited to have an informal meeting with the panel of judges in London, or by conference call.
The judges look for young people who have not only achieved excellence in their careers so far, but who have had to overcome barriers and challenges to get to where they are. They also look for those who actively promote careers in construction and the built environment to young people in their communities.
All our finalists who meet the judges are invited to the Awards dinner in London in March. It is a great evening with a 3 course dinner, hosted by comedian Susan Calman and awards given by HRH The Duke of Gloucester. The winners are announced at the end of the evening and will receive their prize.
The winners will receive cash prizes and a unique development opportunity through the Trust with a one year mentoring programme to enable them to make an even greater impact in the years to come.
