QLA deadline approaches

The deadline is approaching for entries to the 2018 Quarry Life Award. The bi-ennial competition, now in its fourth round, is open to university students, academics, researchers, schools and community groups and offers the chance to win up to £30,000 for quarry-based biodiversity research projects.

Hanson has produced three videos to promote the awards scheme. The first explains what the competition is all about and the types of proposals you can submit. The second and third features first-hand experiences from students and lecturers at Bath Spa University and the University of the West of England who took part in the 2016 competition.

To discuss ideas for your project, or arrange a visit to your local quarry, please email: QLA@hanson.com. You can also follow us on Twitter: @QLA_UK, Facebook: @quarrylifeawarduk and Instagram: quarrylifeawarduk.

The deadline for submitting project proposals to the QLA website www.quarrylifeaward.com is November 20, 2017.
