Our Innovation Competition 2023!

Have you heard about our exciting Innovation Competition for youngsters from secondary schools (or equivalent) in Kent, East Sussex, West Sussex, Essex or Surrey? A great challenge and cash prizes! Read on…

The popular Innovation Competition always draws in some great entries – and this will be our 10th one! 

As always, there are cash prizes for the winning entry and two runner-up entries:

  • 1st prize: £300
  • 2nd prize: £100
  • 3rd prize: £50

Entries can be submitted by individuals or by teams of not more than four people.

Through the competition we hope to encourage secondary school (or equivalent) youngsters from local schools and colleges* to come up with innovative ideas and engage with STEM topics (science, technology, engineering and maths).

Last year the first prize went to Toby, from King Elthelbert School, for his Cybornetic hand idea. There were lots of other very interesting ideas too.

If you have a great idea and fulfil the entry criteria why not enter – it’s FREE to do so. 

Once again this year the competition is being run in partnership with Canterbury Christ Church University. This year it is supported by Leigh’s Fondation, as well as our Club, the Brett Group, James Clague Architects Ltd and The Kentish Gazette. 

We are pleased to announce that yet again the Chowdhury family from Canterbury will be sponsoring a special Global Health prize for the best entry that is judged to help support global health.

Brian Dobinson, who is the main organiser, has already been busy getting in touch with many local schools – but we welcome entries from schools that haven’t entered before.

Finally – don’t forget our “Dear Future Self” competition is also underway. Read more here.
