CREST Award funding opportunity for schools!
Since the start of the 2016/17 Big Ideas programme, Solutions for the Planet have been working with the British Science Association as a CREST Award delivery partner. All the members of the school teams that participate in Big Ideas Day, submit their completed business plan into our Big Ideas Competition by the end of March, and are shortlisted for the regional semi-finals, are eligible for a Bronze CREST Award!
Occasionally, there are rounds of funding available for running CREST Awards, and there is currently another round of grants supporting and enabling CREST awards with young people underrepresented in STEM. There are up to 40 grants available, aimed at schools and organisations working with young people. The application deadline is Monday 29th January 2018 at 5pm.

Students who achieve their Bronze CREST Award on our programme, and then continue through to the finals and beyond, could find themselves eligible to apply for the Silver CREST Award, and there was recently some incredibly positive impact findings about that award, as can be read in the Impact Report here.
