Launched in 2009, the Local Government Challenge (LG Challenge) aims to find local government’s future top executives. The intensive year-long competition, offers the opportunity for one applicant to take away the prestigious Bruce-Lockhart scholarship worth up to £10,000.

Ten contestants undertake five tough challenges in partnership with five leading local councils. The challenges are designed to test their leadership, creative and communicative abilities.

Culminating in an award presentation at the LGA annual conference and exhibition, this is your opportunity to shape the future of local government and for your organisation to lead the way in finding the next generation of leaders throughout the duration of the LG Challenge and also at the local government event of the year.
