Energy supplier npower is running a competition for students to win the opportunity of a lifetime. 19/03/2012
The Future Leaders Challenge offers a team of four university students the chance to win a trip dog sledding in the North Pole. Participants will gain career enhancing life skills and learn the importance of pursuing a more sustainable life.
The challenge is to create a project that will get people in your local community living more sustainably. The best eight ideas will be chosen and the teams will be asked to set about carrying out the project as well as attend a team-building weekend.
By taking part in the Future Leaders Challenge you have an opportunity to showcase your talents and npower guarantees summer placements for every member of the winning team.
The expedition is a stern test in hostile conditions and requires strong characters with a good level of fitness. It is designed to not only help develop your leadership skills but increase employability and show the effects of global warming.
Last year's winners, a team of four from the University of Leicester, are preparing to fly to Norway on 9 April. David, Andrew, Owen and Gediminas ran a campus-based project to raise awareness of climate change.
Following the team-building weekend in Dartmoor, team member Owen Littlejohns said, ‘We were thrilled to be shortlisted for the npower Future Leaders Challenge. We have had a fantastic weekend and will take away some key skills.’
The closing date for applications has been extended from 1 May to 31 May.
