Cooling Prize

Each year the British Geotechnical Association organises the Cooling Prize event, in the memory of Leonard Cooling, to celebrate young geotechnical talent. The event is open to engineers aged 30 and under, who are invited to submit a technical paper to the BGA for consideration for the award. Three finalists are selected to present their paper to an audience and judging panel with the winner announced on the night. Part of the prize for the winner includes publication of their paper in GE and below are some of the recent winners. Other Cooling Prize-winning papers can be found by searching for Cooling Prize in the technical database search engine.
