Leaders Award competition is now open!

17 Nov 2022

This year give your class the opportunity to be inspired by real-life engineers, think up new inventions to solve real-world problems, and enter them into a nationwide competition. Winners might even have their inventions built by a team at UWE Bristol!

Ever wondered whether you could design something to make the world a better place?

The Leaders Award competition is the brainchild of Primary Engineer, who each year use the challenge “If you were an engineer, what would you do?” to prod children’s imagination into gear. And then use live online interviews with amazing engineers, to really get their curious minds firing on all cylinders.

An easy one for Science Week – ticking the box for exposure to STEM careers whilst giving your class an intriguing challenge to put their minds to.

Register your school for the competition at LeadersAward.com

The deadline for submissions is 22ndd March!

Children between ages 3-19 years can enter – and two regional winners from each age category are selected by local engineers.

The winners are then invited to an awards ceremony, where winning and shortlisted designs will all be displayed. And SAVE THE DATE – they’ll be a free family fun STEM activity day at UWE on 30th June with all those designs up for the public to see (photos below).
