New Forest Student Awards

There are two awards this year that are specifically aimed at students attending educational institutions within the New Forest area.

We have used the New Forest District Council's Economic Development Strategy as our area and the list below details the qualifying colleges and universities. If you belong to one of these you could win one of the New Forest Student Awards at either College level or University level.

The New Forest University Student category will be judged by Keith English and Moviola from all the qualifying University-level entries.

The New Forest College Student category will be judged by Moviola and Cllr. Michael Harris from all the qualifying College-level entries.

Both are sponsored by Moviola to the tune of £300 cash and by The Forest Arts Centre with a full day's hire of their facilities.

If you want us to give a promo talk to your students next year, just get in touch.
