Our ‘Creative Business Idea’ Video Competition 21/22 programme will soon open for applications. (November 2021)
The idea behind this competition is to encourage creative thinking and innovative among students, without students having to actually produce a product or prototype.
Here’s How It Works
-Students must come up with an innovative new business idea based around the theme of ‘Fitness & Wellbeing Innovations’. Business ideas must fall within the remit of ‘Fitness & Wellness’.
-Students DO NOT have to have a prototype or product made/sold to take part in this competition – it is purely concept based and students will be judged on the innovation of their idea.
-Students must make a short 2 minute video (maximum length) outlining what their business idea is and how it works.
-Students under 16 years old can enter in the junior category.
-Students over 16 years can enter in the senior category
–Senior category: Any student appearing in the video clip must also be over 16 years of age at the time of appearing in the video. The video clip should be uploaded to the student’s You Tube account and put on a ‘public setting’.
–Junior category: Students should NOT appear in the video but instead use props/animation/slides/narration to pitch their idea. The video clip should be uploaded to You Tube account (with parental permission) and put on a ‘public setting’.
