Youths Inspired to Change the World
Students in grades 9-12 attending school within the Moreton Bay local government area are encouraged to enter the Mayor’s Telstra Innovation Awards (MTIA).
The MTIA program encourages students to develop their entrepreneurial passions whilst helping turn dreams into reality. Last year, 21 teams from eight local schools benefited from connecting with mentors and learning industry-relevant skills that will help them bring their creative ideas to life.
Mayor Flannery said he is eager to see what innovative solutions the 2023 entrants present for real-life problems, such as affordable temporary housing, life-saving smart bands, and recycling apps.
There are over $10,000 in prizes up for grabs, including prize packs for the first, second, and third placing teams and their schools, certificates for all finalist teams, and the Award for Emerging Entrepreneur of the Year.
