Are you a positive disruptor aged between 10 and 25?
Then you could win £1,000 in a new competition which aims to unearth a new generation of aspiring young entrpreneurs in Allerdale and Copeland.
Developed by Cumbria Community Foundation, Positive Disruptors is funded by Cumbrian property developer, Brian Scowcroft, with match funding from Sellafield Ltd as part of its Transforming West Cumbria programme, LLWR, Well Whitehaven, Morgan Sindall and Kaefer.
The aim of the programme is to empower young people to “positively disrupt” the status quo, to give them a platform to get their ideas heard.
Ten successful entrants will each be awarded £1,000 to help them realise their ambition, as well as six months’ support and mentoring from the Centre for Leadership Performance.
Annalee Holliday, of Cumbria Community Foundation, said: “It is very encouraging to see more funding allocated to creating opportunities after what has been a very challenging time.
“Positive Disruptors will have an incredible impact on young people, empowering them to develop their ideas that will benefit their peers, their communities and young people of the future.”
Potential positive disruptors have until October 29 to apply at https://www.cumbriafoundation.org/transforming-west-cumbria/positive-disruptors/
An advisory panel will meet to review all entries and winners will be announced in November.
