Due to the number of submissions made across the country, we have decided to remove the regional finals stage and judge all submissions made by a national panel so that there is consistency. This national panel will shortlist the top 15 teams from across Scotland to go forward to compete at the Scottish Finals on 1st June 2021. This means that there will not be 15 individual regional events from 20-22 April this year. Instead, there will be one event on Wednesday 21st April at 6pm to celebrate the achievements of all young people involved and to announce the shortlist for the Scottish Finals.
You can register for this event here: Please feel free to share this link with Students, Link Teachers and Business Advisers.
In order to recognise the significant achievement and resilience of the young people to get to this stage, each school that has submitted evidence to the regional finals stage will receive a physical certificate of achievement and a letter from Young Enterprise Scotland after the judging is complete.
The Lothian Area team and Young Enterprise Scotland are hugely grateful for everyone for all your support, resilience and flexibility during what has been the most challenging of years for everyone, with those who have been impacted the most, the young people, being at the front and centre of the decisions that have been made.
