You now have until midnight on Monday, 28 March to submit your entries to the Cornwall Business Awards.

Due to a late flurry of interest in applying for the awards, the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Growth and Skills Hub have announced the extension to allow businesses just a little more time to tweak and perfect their applications, with the Awards night on 30 June now just a matter of months away.

Kirsty Miles-Musgrave, Operations Manager for the Growth and Skills Hub said:

“With the awards on an enforced hiatus these past two years we recognise that everyone might need a bit more time to write their application. If you have never applied for an award before we are here to help with a series of top tips webinars, which are recorded so you can watch back as you are doing your entry. Plus, the team are on our webchat to answer any questions should you have them.”

With 15 categories to choose from there is an award category for everyone, from sustainability to great customer service or places to work.
