Unilever & All About STEM Bright Future Celebration & Awards 2019!
In November 2018, All About STEM facilitated a three day event for regional schools to take part in the Unilever Bright Future Programme hosted by Unilever Port Sunlight. On the 21st of March, entrants returned to present their amazing projects at the Unilever Bright Future Celebration & Assessment Day. Who reigned supreme in 2019?
27 schools took part in the programme, enjoying interactive activities that introduced them to processing, packaging, the environment and more.
Following their visit, students were given three months to design their own environmentally friendly/sustainable product.
All entrants delivered phenomenal concepts and the competition was extremely difficult to judge. This year’s overall winner presented ‘Glow Up’ an eco-friendly skin scrub in cork packaging.
Congratulations to all!

“Unilever Bright Future is a platform that helps unite and amplify the efforts of a growing community of people who believe it is possible to build a world where everyone lives well and lives sustainably. Who recognise we can only achieve this if we all work together to do small actions every day that make a real difference and who inspire others to join in making this the way everyone chooses to live.” [Unilever]
