Nominations for winners of the Frank Jenkins Memorial Trophy are now open. Deadline for applications is Monday 16 December 2019. Celebrating young gamekeepers.

Now in its ninth year, this annual award in memory of the late Mr Frank Jenkins, is open to all gamekeeping trainees and modern apprentices who attended or graduated from college during the 2018/2019 academic year, either full or part-time.

This prestigious award, kindly sponsored by Musto is judged annually by the NGO.  It recognises the student who shows outstanding practical and theoretical skills and has the ability to be an ambassador for the sport. The award is now in its ninth year and was set up by the family of the late Frank Jenkins, a well-known gamekeeper whose career spanned six decades.

The presentation of the Frank Jenkins Memorial Trophy will be made at the British Shooting Show in February 2020.

The winner will receive a fantastic Highland Gore-Tex Ultra Lite Suit, which features the Highland Gore-Tex Ultra Lite Jacket and the new Highland Gore-Tex Ultra Lite Trousers, courtesy of our kind sponsor, Musto.
