Thursday 24 November East Midlands Councils held the first East Midlands Local Authority Challenge at Donington Race Track. 20 teams from across the East Midlands took part in the challenge and competed for the coveted prize of the Local Authority Challenge East Midlands Winner.
We are pleased to announce the results below, but congratulations go to all teams involved on the day.
Teams on the day faced a range of tasks including presentations to Overview and Scrutiny boards of their fictional local authority, challenging media interviews and a last minute emergency response plan to finalise and role out in the final fifteen minutes of the day. Teams on the day had to develop relationships with their leader and to manage challenging situations thrown up by the day.
