We are challenging you to share your creative work with the world! 

Submit by 22nd October 2021

There are $850 of prizes up for grabs!

You can submit anything creative you have done this year!

Many of you will be working on putting together your NCEA portfolios, and we would love to see that work!

It doesn’t have to be schoolwork, it might be:

  • a life hack you came up with,
  • a passion project
  • or just a cool way you have solved a problem

We look forward to seeing your work!
