The EDUcatering Excellence Awards 2018 are open for entries!

Who is a star in your catering team? Are you proud of the innovations launched in your business over the past 12 months? Then nominate them for an EDUcatering Excellence Award!

The EDUcatering Excellence Awards are the only awards that recognise catering across the entire school sector, including local authority-run schools, contract caterers and self-managed sites, in state maintained schools, academies and independent schools.

We want to celebrate every achievement in every sector of school catering and we want to give you the opportunity to thank the individuals and teams in your operation by giving them a night to remember.

There are 12 categories that you can enter and details for each nomination can be found here. The judging panel, which will be made up of people working across the school catering industry and closely linked to it, will meet in August to decide on the final shortlist. All shortlisted nominees will be invited to our glittering gala dinner at the Royal Garden Hotel in London’s Kensington on Tuesday 8th October.

Note that the closing date for entries is slightly later than usual, on Friday 20th July, but this will not be extended.

All nominations can be made online and you can save your nomination at any time to edit it before submitting.

So if you would like to sing the praises of someone in your team, or celebrate the achievements of an entire catering team, then nominate them today!
