LG Challenge logoLocal Government Challenge is a competition which seeks out the best and brightest local government officers with the drive and determination to reach the top.

Competitors take part in a series of real-life challenges in host authorities around the country, which test their individual and team-working skills. The competition offers a great career development opportunity and if they win, there is a prize of up to £10,000 from the Bruce-Lockhart scholarship.
