London Leaders Award

The award, supported by UCL, invites pupils from Primary and Secondary schools in London to be inspired by an engineer from a local industry. They can then apply an engineer’s eye to the world and identify problems in need of solving. When they have settled on their idea, they draw and annotate it, making clear what the problem is and their unique solution to it.
The partnership with UCL extends to the selection of a winning entry for UCL engineers to make and present at the following year’s awards.
The deadline is the 29th March 2017. All entries we receive will be awarded certificates, some will achieve Merits and Distinctions. A panel chooses two great ideas from each year group. These winners are presented with awards as part of a private show and awards day on the 5th July 2017, followed by a public exhibition at the UCL Chadwick Building from 3:00pm – 7:00pm.
