Global Millennium Prize Competition South Africa launched. This pilot of the global GMP competition is being undertaken by the SA Node with the support of the Cooperation Framework on Innovation Systems between Finland and South (COFISA) which is sponsoring the pilot. The competition is being held in South Africa’s Free State province with Grade 10 learners in 10 selected schools in the Kroonstad area. Local winners will be entered into the international competition possibly winning an expense-paid trip to participate in the international GMP winners’ ceremony in Mexico City in May 2010.
If successful, the Node intends to seek ways to roll out the GMP as an annual competition for SA schools. Support is invited towards this.
