[SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW CLOSED] Thanks to all of you for your submissions!
Are you a student with a good idea? Want to earn $500 in ten minutes?
This year we are launching the IdeaWave Youth Scholarship Program! Weʼre looking for high school, post-secondary and graduate students to participate in the second annual IdeaWave conference in Victoria. Up to five speaker positions will be reserved for students. If you are awarded one of these positions you will receive:
- Eligibility to win one of our $500 scholarships
- Full access to the conference
- Two guest passes to bring family or friends
IdeaWave is all about ideas. The conference consists of a series of 50 talks over two days. Ideas for presentations can be large or small. They can be environmental ideas, project ideas or just fun ideas. There are no subject restrictions and the only criterion is that it is your idea. Each presentation is a maximum of 10 minutes in length. This is a great opportunity to meet new friends AND have an amazing accomplishment that you can put on your resume or include on your university applications. Talks will be recorded and may published on the ideawave.ca website as well as televised.
Please allow us a few weeks to respond to your submission. If you are under eighteen and your talk is accepted, we will need to get written approval from your parent or guardian to participate in the conference. Talks will be accepted until you see fifty talks posted on the conference page. We will update this page saying talks are no longer being accepted when that happens.
