IS THERE SUPPORT FOR STUDENTS?

Yes, advice on producing a digital entry will be available online and workshops are planned to provide help and advice on presenting skills and public speaking.

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, academies and colleges in Birmingham and the Midlands. As the Prize is a scholarship of a science, technology and engineering degree course at Birmingham City University, only year 13 students are eligible to take part. Each school or college is permitted to enter one or a number students for the Final.

DO SCHOOLS NEED TO REGISTER STUDENTS?

Staff from school and colleges can register students, or students can register directly on our 'Enter' page. Participants including the schools, teachers and students must agree to the publication of their digital work, photographs and video images of their participation in The Millennium Point Young Innovator Prize. Participation in the Prize acknowledges agreement of these conditions. The winner of the 2016 prize will be invited to attend future launches of the Prize and speak or complete a short video about what winning the Prize has meant to them.

WHO CAN ATTEND THE FINAL?

Attendance will be by invitation and include teachers from the schools attended by the finalists along with nominated family and friends of the finalists. Details of the number of tickets available will be confirmed. Support for the Finalists is important as many will not have previously spoken in public.

SPECIAL NEEDS

Assistance will be provided to any student who requires special needs to compete at the Final. Information will need to be provided in advance.
