Graduate award line up 'worthy of high esteem'

JUDGES FOR this year's NCE National Graduate Awards had a tough job picking a winner from the seven shortlisted candidates this week.

The finalists, five of them women, were chosen from an initial entry of several dozen. All gave excellent presentations in response to

the question: 'How can engineers demonstrate they warrant high public esteem?'

Three top graduates - with the winner receiving 1,000 - will be revealed during a special lunch at the ICE on 4 December.

Now in its second year, the competition aims to reward the year's most promising newcomers to the profession, judged not

just on academic prowess but also on communication skills and potential as forward thinkers.

The judging team, chaired by Scott Wilson director Peter Guthrie, includes senior representatives from award sponsors

Ove Arup & Partners, BAA, British Steel, Marshalls and Hepworth Drainage (see Commentary page 10).
