Test of Time Award 2020

The Test of Time Award was introduced in 2011 and rewards previous BCO award winners that have gone on to fulfil their original aspirations and intentions. It recognises factors such as adaptability, savings in use, increased staff retention and / or reduced staff absenteeism. This award is by invitation of the national judging panel and is open to awards winners from the previous five years. All winners of a BCO Award in 2015 will be invited in early 2020 to enter their winning project for a chance to win the BCO Test of Time Award at the National Awards Dinner in October 2020.
