Award criteria

The Career Ready Logistics Student of the Year Award recognises the students who have made the most progress on their logistics career journey. As part of the nomination form, you will be asked to provide a written statement (500 words maximum) explaining how you think your student has made significant progress and shown commitment to a career in the logistics profession.

This is your chance to ensure your nominated student stands out. To do this, you could consider some of the following points in your statement:

What logistics career the student is aiming for and why he/she has chosen that career
How the Career Ready experience has impacted on his/her choice of career e.g. workplace visits, mentor, masterclasses, work experience etc.

Nomination and judging process

To nominate your student, please complete the online nomination form by 18 February 2019.

Any incomplete nominations or nominations received after that time will not be considered. All nominations will be acknowledged by email.

Those nominees selected to go forward to the national judging process will be invited to an on-line national judging interview in early March where they will be interviewed by a panel for approximately 30 minutes and asked to deliver a presentation – we suggest a maximum of six PowerPoint slides.

The decision of the judging panel will be final and there will be no appeal procedure.
