CELEBRATING INNOVATION IN WESTERN AUSTRALIA

YOUNG INNOVATOR COMPETITION GERALDTON

For the second year the Young Innovator Competition will be held during West Tech Fest encouraging school students from years 5- 10 to create innovative ideas to deal with real problems.

This year’s theme of ocean and waterways health is creating interest from our youth in developing solutions to significant problems facing these sensitive systems.

Last year judges were presented with some super refreshing ideas that were to provide a better community for Geraldton.

Representatives from the Perth US Embassy and some West Tech Fest entrepreneurs will visit Geraldton to participate in the judging and awarding of prizes to finalists.

These innovative thinkers will be moving into the startup world after they finish school and will be well prepared to take any idea to the global market.

TECH LEADER TRIP TO EXMOUTH
West Tech Fest hits the road to celebrate and identify innovation and investment opportunities across the Midwest and Gascoyne region, in Exmouth and beyond.

The Midwest & Gascoyne West Tech Fest program has been developed in partnership Regional Development Australia, Mid West & Gascoyne, and with the generous support from the US Embassy Canberra & US Consulate Perth & Iluka Resources.

“The young innovators competition is showing that todays youth can think of real ways to deal with problems we are facing as a global community. We are expecting the judges that visit Geraldton from the West Tech Fest to be inspired by the ideas that come from the young innovators following last year’s success."
