#MyLittleBigThing, is a competition challenging University, Polytechnics & Technical Vocational Educational Training students across Africa to develop innovative ideas that are commercially viable that will contribute to the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals. This year, they will be considering entries that fall into any one of the following SDGs:
Entries include a 2 – 3 minute YouTube video as well as a 200-word essay describing the project idea. The idea should clearly describe the SDG (s) and, which of the targets, that it falls under.
Judging will once again be moderated by PKF who will put together an expert jury panel to select the 15 best ideas. These finalists receive a FREE online two-day training by PKF and MK-Africa. The training will include business and presentation skills and idea incubation.
After the 2 days, the 15 will go through community immersion where they test their ideas with their immediate communities for a period of 6 weeks. It is important that they have a mentor to guide them through this phase. However, it is not a prerequisite during the application process.
Videos taken during this phase will be uploaded www.mylittlebigthing.com for voting. The public will select the best 7 projects, which will progress to the final stage of the competition.
The seven selected students will present their ideas during the finals event which will be online and the judges will select the best three projects.Judges will consider the viability of the idea, adaptability, and originality.
Eligible Regions: African countries
