Norfolk Innovation Awards 2016

Over 150 students, parents, teachers and local businesses will come together at Wymondham High Academy to celebrate the second year of the Awards.

George Freeman MP says:

“This is an evening about the young, the future and a brighter tomorrow.

For too long, I believe Norfolk has been regarded as a rural backwater, in education and in particular the all-important STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) subjects.

I am delighted that through these awards supported by and in conjunction with some of the leading businesses and skill agencies in our area, we are celebrating the best and inspiring the rest by rewarding the best examples of science and innovation in schools and colleges.

Together, we will help build a network of Norfolk enterprise and innovation to help power the Norfolk Economy for the 21st Century”.

After the enormous success of the inaugural awards last year, and with winners from across all the Norfolk schools, I am thrilled and delighted to announce details for this year’s competition.

For too long, I believe Norfolk has been regarded as a rural backwater, in education and in particular the all-important STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) subjects.

If we are going to unlock the full potential of Norfolk’s young people and equip them to success in the increasingly competitive global economy, and to seize and benefit from the growing opportunities on their doorstep here in the Eastern Region, then we must do all we can to promote the spirit of innovation and enterprise in our area and encourage the next generation. I am delighted that through these awards supported by and in conjunction with some of the leading businesses and skill agencies in our area, we are celebrating the best and inspiring the rest by rewarding the best examples of science and innovation in schools and colleges.

Together, we will help build a network of Norfolk enterprise and innovation to help power the Norfolk Economy for the 21st Century.
