There are also two additional awards that can be won by any entry from the above categories. They are:
Inclusive Enterprise Education Award
This is an additional award that will be conferred on one entry from any of the other four categories. The award is designed to recognise excellence in driving change in Equality, Diversity and Inclusivity (EDI) in the areas of enterprise and entrepreneurship education and practice. This year Enterprise Educators UK will be asking the judging panel to review all applications across all four categories in terms of their commitment to Equality, Diversity, and Inclusivity (EDI) in the areas of enterprise and entrepreneurship education and practice. The Inclusive Enterprise Education Award will only be made when one application stands above all others in demonstrating a strong ethos and commitment to EDI.
Winner receives £500, trophy and certificate and will be selected from an entry to one of the above categories.
People’s Choice Award
Shortlisted entries are invited to submit a short video for online public voting to determine the winner of an additional ‘People’s Choice’ award which could come from any of the four categories above.
