State schools invited to nominate next generation of budding engineers

Calling for nominations for the Oxfordshire High Sheriff Young Engineer Awards!

The annual High Sheriff Young Engineer Awards are once again calling on Oxfordshire’s state schools to nominate the next generation of budding engineers.

State schools are invited to nominate students who have a passion for, and show great promise in, the fields of engineering, resistant materials and design technology. Prizes include £400 for the winning student in each category and £1,000 for the students’ respective school or college.

Now in their 13th year, the awards are sponsored by Abingdon & Witney College, The Engineering Trust and Lucy Group Ltd, a long-standing Oxford company that engineers smart electrics for the built environment. Applications must be submitted by Thursday 6th April and the top three students from each category will be invited to attend an awards ceremony on Monday 26th June at Abingdon & Witney College.

Commenting on this year’s awards Marea Brown, event organiser at Abingdon & Witney College, said: “The judging panel is increasingly inspired by the ingenuity of the nominated students and the rise in nominations for girls. Our aim is to help give talented youth a chance to ignite their interest in engineering, go on to reach their full career potential and help meet some of the world’s biggest challenges.”
