For the past seven years the BA Fine Art students at the college, had been invited to design and make the trophies for the Chemicals Northwest Annual Awards. Special thanks also go to Solvay Interox Ltd who sponsored the award trophies. We would also like to thank Hosokawa Micron Ltd for sponsorship of the drinks reception and Manntek AB for once again sponsoring the Awards dinner brochure for the evening.
