Greater Manchester Leaders Award
The award, funded by Siemens and the Greater Manchester Council, and supported by the Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce, invites pupils from Primary and Secondary schools in the Greater Manchester region to be inspired by an engineer from a local industry. They can then apply an engineer’s eye to the world and identify problems inneed 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 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, followed by a public exhibition at the Town Hall in Manchester, kindly provided by the Council – date to be confirmed. For more information contact the firstname.lastname@example.org or register your school here.
Primary Engineer and the Leaders Award extend their thanks to the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and many other Greater Manchester industries for their support. The aim is to inspire pupils with the extraordinary careers available to them in the region, meet engineers and understand their career paths and motivation.
