Can any school or Academy enter? Last year, The Millennium Point Innovator Prize was only open to a limited number of schools. This year it is open to all schools and academies in Birmingham and the West Midlands. As the Prize is a scholarship of a science, technology and engineering degree course at Birmingham City University, only year 13 students studying for their ‘A’ levels are eligible to take part. Each school is permitted to enter only two students for the Final.
