Following on from her regional win, Charlotte Collins has won first prize in the Women in Property (WiP) National Student Awards! Congratulations to Charlotte – a fantastic achievement. The official press release stated:
Sir Bob Kerslake, Head of the Civil Service, presented the award, saying “…this competition is what the industry needs, helping to raise the bar among both academia and industry”.
The 2013 winner is Charlotte Collins, studying Landscape Architecture at the University of Gloucestershire. Charlotte was one of ten finalists from across the UK, who together represented disciplines including Building and Quantity Surveying, Architecture, Planning, Civil Engineering and Real Estate Management.
Sir Bob Kerslake continued, “I know that many of the contenders in these Awards, past and present, have secured work placements and gone on to work in their chosen careers, considerably strengthened by the challenges WiP puts before them. This has got to be good news for the industry as these exceptional young women forge their careers.”
As part of their entry, students are required to present a degree project to judges, when they are questioned on their thinking, motivation and aspirations. They are also quizzed on topical or industry issues and judges assess them on ‘first impressions’, confidence and potential as a role model for other young women entering the industry and as a future leader.
