YGN Excellence Prize

What is the YGN Excellence Prize?

The YGN Excellence Prize is an award for newcomers to the Nuclear Industry (less than five years’ nuclear experience) who have gone above and beyond the roles required of them. There is a specific emphasis on the individual’s achievement to promote the nuclear industry and fulfilment of the YGN Mission. The award is an attempt to recognise these individuals and their accomplishments over their brief time within the industry.

The winning individual will receive the following:

  • £400 prize money
  • Prize and announcement at the YGN Dinner
  • Feature(s) in the YGN’s Marketing and Comms

How the prize will be judged and awarded

All entries should be submitted to the YGN Chair via chair.ygn@nuclearinst.com using the nomination form. All entries will be reviewed by a panel formed from YGN Committee members.
