The Cotswold Challenge for young entrepreneurs

Students in years 11-13 with a great idea for a product or service have just a week left to enter The Cotswold Challenge.

The competition is looking for future inventors like James Dyson, entrepreneurial thinkers like Steve Jobs or activists like Greta Thunberg, who have views on how we can better the planet or our way of life.

Whether you have an innovative idea, an entrepreneurial service, a new invention or initiative, organisers would like to hear about it.

Entries will be judged by the following:

• How different is the innovation/ idea/ campaign from what's out there already?

• How can your innovation be used and how big an impact could it make?

• Who would benefit if the innovation/ idea/ campaign became a reality?

Written ideas need to be limited to be no longer than 700 words and should be broken down into:

• Reason/ background/ objective

• Solution/ idea/ campaign

Photos and sketches can also be included with the entries.

The first prize is £500, with a second prize of £300, third prize of £150 and fourth prize of £50. There will also be a special recognition award of £250 and four highly commended awards.

Entries should be submitted by 9pm on Monday 12th July at https://thecotswoldchallenge.com/innovation/.
