i-squared-prizes

The i2 Competition is intended to give Vincentian youths the chance to change the world using their imagination and creativity and to showcase the young people’s inclination towards innovation. Innovation powers entrepreneurship. We want to provide the foundation for innovation by giving you a forum for coming up with great inspiring ideas that could revolutionize Vincentian Society.

The NTRC hopes to encourage students from various Secondary, Technical and Tertiary level institutes from across the state to develop mobile applications and ideas that can facilitate the implementation of new systems or improve existing systems within the private sector of St. Vincent and the Grenadines so as to improve the delivery of their services to consumers.

The competition seeks to primarily focus on the importance of idea creation and the possibilities that can develop from the seeds of innovation that are planted in the minds of the young people. That being said, students will be challenged to develop and present projects in the form of Ideas and Mobile Applications.
