Young Innovator Awards

The annual ‘Young Innovator Awards’ have been designed to create tomorrow’s innovators through the application of innovative problem solving and critical thinking in young people.  The initiative is a partnership between Priority One’s Instep programme and high-profile entrepreneurial Priority One members Bluelab Corporation, Plus Group Horticulture and Woods the Creative Agency.  Award entries are judged by a team of experts against the criteria of innovation, research, creativity, sustainability and communication.  Alongside the awards, an innovation forum will be hosted where experts in their respective fields discuss how innovation contributed to their success.
