Time runs low for big ideas

TIME is running out for central Victorians to enter Origin’s littleBIGidea competition.

The competition aims to foster creativity and innovation in students from grade three to eight.

"This is a really exciting competition that encourages students to think creatively and innovatively about Australia’s future. We want students to tell us their ideas – no matter how big or small – and in doing so, we just might uncover a littleBIGidea that changes life for future generations," judge James O'Loghlin said.

The top 12 finalist will be invited to attend a forum in Sydney in October to present their idea to the judges.

Three overall winners will win a trip to Florida, USA to visit innovation hotspots, including the Kennedy Space Centre, Walt Disney World Florida and Ripley's Believer It or Not.

Nine runners up will win $1000 education grants. Entries close on September 5. To enter visit, www.littlebigidea.com.au
