To support the launch of its new website, School-gen is running an Energising Young Minds competition with $50,000 worth of prizes up for grabs.

The cash prizes come from Genesis and its customers and the idea is that schools use the funding to purchase equipment that will help them teach science, technology, engineering and maths.

According to School-gen educator Rob Duff, anyone can nominate a school.

“All you have to do is go the Entry page and nominate your school. The School-gen team will check in with the School to make sure they are happy to be involved. Then it’s a case of getting the school community to vote for the school,” says Duff.

To make sure bigger schools don’t have an unfair advantage, the number of votes a school gets will be divided by the school role.

Once the voting closes on 2 April, the top five schools will go forward to a judging panel who will base their decision on how the school is going to use the funds to energise their students minds in the areas of science, technology, engineering and maths.

Entry pre-registration opens on 1 February and voting kicks starts on 12 February. The winners will be announced on 30 April 2018.
