Entry and judging criteria
We are looking for inspiring adults, who are early into their career in the water and environment sector, and are working hard to help protect our environment.
Please download an application form here and fill out each section, including any work you have conducted outside of your normal remit which contributes to environmental awareness and understanding. This can be paid or unpaid, as an addition to your day job or something you do in your own time.
Candidates must have their entry supported by their employer (usually line manager), or via a CIWEM Branch or Group. Candidates must be at the start of their career – with 5 years or less industry experience. You don’t need to be a CIWEM member to apply.
Each candidate will be assessed by a panel of judges including representatives of CIWEM and Jacobs, as well as independent suitably qualified individuals. In the first instance, judging will be based on the nomination form, according to the following criteria:
- Contribution made to environmental awareness and understanding
- Work the nominee has carried out outside their normal remit
- Qualifications and career progression
The judges’ decision on all matters relating to the competition is final.
