Be in with a chance of winning £500 for your school, £50 voucher per student and experience a practical and hands-on construction day.
The UK does not have enough engineers. It is projected that UK companies need to recruit 87,000 new engineers each year to fill the 2.56 million job openings from 2012 to 2022. To do this they will have to double the number of engineering apprentices and double the number of people with engineering qualifications to meet demand.
The UK needs innovative ideas to attract engineers from all areas of society to ensure a diverse workforce fit to tackle challenges such as climate change, population growth, building bigger and taller buildings and providing clean water and sanitation for all.
For a chance to win a £500 prize for your school and a £50 shopping voucher per student all you have to do is get a team of between 3 and 6 together and produce a video. Students must be in Year 7.
Teams must produce a 2 minute video on 'what is sustainable civil engineering?' Teams must also answer the question 'How did Civil Engineering affect you today?' in a written piece.
This competition is a great chance to put your research and creative skills to the test and to learn about a rewarding career.
All entries will be assessed by a panel of professional and local engineers. The top entries will qualify for the finals day on 7 May 2020 where students will act as 'real life civil engineers' for the day to complete a practical and hands-on construction project.
The three best teams overall will be awarded prizes on the finals day, with vouchers for each team member and money for their school:
The winning team will be announced in a press release issued to local press and in a news article on the website. Photos may also be used by ICE in future campaigns.
To enter, a registration form must be downloaded and completed. Completed forms should be emailed to [email protected] before the deadline of 5pm on 20 December 2019.
