Young innovators to be rewarded with new award

GLADSTONE region businesses, groups and individuals have a chance of scoring big in the $65,000 Innovation Challenge awards.

The awards honour excellence in fields from minerals and energy to ICT and community services.

The awards, now in their fourth year, are helping to drive breakthroughs to commercialisation or adoption.

This year, organisers have introduced a young innovators category that is open to students under the age of 21.

It carries a $5000 cash prize.

The professional category winners will receive prizes of $5000.

The overall winner will receive a further $25,000.

The awards are open to individuals and teams, and you can enter more than one project.

Entries close on July 14.
