The National Competition will be held in the autumn of 2017, with further cash prizes and the opportunity to present at the YGN Seminar preceding the YGN Annual Dinner in 2017.

Competition guidelines can be found here.

The Subject Matter

We encourage you to present a talk on:

"Any nuclear, energy or environmental subject, whether technical, social or personal".  

The topic is really up to you: it may relate to energy generation or supply and could include environmental or community considerations etc. We hope that this wide scope will encourage those of you new to, or thinking of starting a career in the nuclear industry, to have a go.  

For those of you wishing to present a ‘commercial or sensitive’ subject, we remind you of the importance of OBTAINING PERMISSION FROM YOUR EMPLOYER/UNIVERSITY in advance.

The Experience

The aim is to give you the opportunity to gain valuable experience in communication skills in front of a live audience.  Emphasis is placed on presentation rather than the written word and the ability to handle questions from the audience. There will also be the opportunity for networking.
