Awards Information

The Future Industry Leaders Awards, formerly known as The Contribution to the Business Awards, is a great opportunity for students to showcase their placement projects.  Through a short presentation to a panel of experts, they will demonstrate the difference made to the hosting company and the learning outcomes.

The difference could be a £370,000 product assembly machine, redesigned and project-managed, or the solution to a manufacturing problem with cutting-edge technology, resulting in a financial benefit of £135,000 per annum.

We encourage all students to apply and regional heats take place throughout the summer (your YINI regional office will supply details). The winners of each regional final will be invited to attend the National Final in September. Click here for The Award Entry Form. Finalists receive coaching on how to present their case and cash prizes are available for the winners.
