Nominations for the 2018 Businesses for Children Awards

Please note: Nominations for 2018 are now closed

The Businesses for Children Awards are open to all companies which are based in Shropshire and work with, or for, children aged 0-18. We also have a category for volunteers.

We urge all businesses, or parents/carers nominating, to study the criteria before applying as awards are judged on this set criteria in the first instance.

The Businesses for Children Awards are FREE to enter but all finalists are required to have a representative attend the ceremony, for which tickets are £35.00 per head.

Please submit a separate entry for each category submission, as no two entries can be the same given the difference in criteria. Duplicate submissions for multiple categories will not be accepted.

Please note that some categories require a parent testimonial in order to meet the entry criteria.

*when nominating a volunteer use the information of the business or organisation they work with/for.

Businesses are limited to a maximum of three categories which they can put themselves forward for.

If you have any questions then please contact the BCA co-ordinator on businessesforchildren@gmail.com
