If that sounds like you, it’s time to share your success – and put yourself forward to win a cash injection for your business with the Rotherham Young Entrepreneur of the Year Awards 2011. 

What’s it all about? 
Nurturing and helping to develop young talent is the long-term aim of the awards, which are back for the sixth year running. 
Already these forward-thinking awards have rewarded, celebrated and promoted some amazing businesses run by young people in the borough. 
From ice sculpture, fashion, dance or engineering to IT solutions and graphic design, the awards have highlighted the hidden skill base of some smart young individuals. And awards are excellent accolades for businesses – providing independent recognition and a boost to confidence and morale. 

What’s in it for me? 
Winners and runners up in each category will each receive a cash prize and publicity for their business. Category winners will be invited to attend the Rotherham Chamber of Commerce Awards in October when they will be presented with their certificates – and the overall winner will be awarded the title Rotherham Young Entrepreneur of the Year. 

How do I enter? 
It couldn’t be simpler. Just decide which of the four categories you’d like to enter and complete the attached form. You can enter more than one award. The top accolade of Rotherham Young Entrepreneur of the Year will be selected by judges from all successful entrants. 
(All entry details will be treated in the strictest confidence)
