Nominations now open for Hull Youth Enterprise Awards 2017 - 14/07/17
Nominations are now open for Hull Youth Enterprise Awards 2017 that recognise Hull's enterprising schools and businesses.

The awards recognise Hull's enterprising schools and businesses and are organised by Hull City Council in partnership with the Hull Youth Enterprise Bank.

Award categories:

• The Maxwell Bird most enterprising school in Hull 2017
• The business that has done the most to promote an enterprise culture in the City 2017
• The Sheila Waudby Young Entrepreneur of the Year 2017
• Most Enterprising Teacher 2017
• The Jane Disbrey Enterprising Student Award 2017
• Best Newcomer School to Enterprise Education 2017

Special awards

• The John Cracknell Youth Enterprise Award
• The Lee Creamer Youth Enterprise Award
• The Gordon Wilson Youth Enterprise Leadership Award
• The Jack Brignall Youth Enterprise Award

The awards are sponsored by local businesses and organisations from across the city. This year's award winners will be announced in Global Entrepreneurship Week at the Guildhall in November.

The deadline for completed entry forms will be Sunday 1 October and judging will be completed by Tuesday 10 October.

Winners will be invited to receive their award at the celebration event on Friday 17 November at Craven Park as part of Global Entrepreneurship Week. The winning schools will receive an engraved plaque and £200 to further develop enterprise activity.

Councillor Martin Mancey, Portfolio Holder for Economic Investment, said: "I look forward to welcoming the nominations for these awards from across the city as we look to develop Hull's entrepreneurial culture amongst our young people.

"The Council, in collaboration with the Hull Youth Enterprise Partnership, is committed to supporting our enterprising young people. We are more than aware that the young people of Hull are our future, and we want them to move forward in life equipped with the right skills to build successful careers.

“I particularly welcome the two new awards in the memories of the late Maxwell Bird and Gordon Wilson, two champions of young people in the city that sadly passed away this year.”

Nick Sangwin, MD of the Sangwin Group and Chair of Global Entrepreneurship Week Planning Group, added: “There is no doubt that Hull, as a city, has real commitment through the Youth Enterprise Partnership to develop the enterprising skills of young people. With the right support and encouragement, Hull's young people are truly enterprising. Whilst not all will pursue an entrepreneurial career in the future, the majority of them will most certainly use their skills in the workplace."

Last year Ross Bennett was honoured with The Sheila Waudby Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award and thoroughly enjoyed the experience, he said: "For five years my educational services business has had support from the Hull Youth Enterprise Partnership and its many partners. I am very proud to be associated with them, especially during Global Entrepreneurship Week and as a member of the John Cracknell Youth Enterprise Bank management committee."
