Meet the contestants
Our 10 contestants have been chosen to take part in this year's LG Challenge. Now in its eighth year, the competition sees the best and brightest local government officers compete in a series of real-life challenges around the country.
Master problem solvers and passionate about delivering the best for the residents they serve, this year's LG Challengers will come up with innovative solutions to the challenges faced by local government from creating new tourist destinations to saving millions in adult social care. With the prize of a Bruce Lockhart scholarship worth up to £10,000, there is an opportunity for the winner to make a real and long lasting impact in their area, as well as giving their CV a substantial edge. Find out more by watching our short introduction to the challenge video.
