The annual Belize Youth Innovation Challenge is moving from its usual face to face presentations to an online platform.  The event is in its seventh year and is focused on having students come up with unique and creative entrepreneurial ideas.  Those ideas are then presented to a panel of judges and an audience of secondary schools from around the country.  This year, however, due to the Covid-19 endemic, the Ministry of Education will have the students make their presentations online.  Chief Education Officer, Dr Carol Babb spoke on the changes earlier today.

Dr.Carol Babb, Chief Education Officer: They will still present their solution to the challenge to a panel of judges but it will be done virtually this year. The challenge this year is “Innovation, the pathway to the creation of successful entrepreneurship.”  So we are hoping that students will come up with innovative ideas about how they can create entrepreneurship for themselves. We want to encourage young people not to look for jobs but to really create jobs so this will be a year when they will come up with innovative ideas how they can create their own businesses, how they can market it  and how they can entice others to support them.

Reporter: How many schools are participating ?

Dr.Carol Babb, Chief Education Officer: “We have about fifteen schools participating this year. We invited every single high school in the country but because of COVID and other factors some of the schools cannot participate.”

The challenge takes place on Friday, June 12.
