2022 has been another record year for Future Anything’s Activate in-curriculum school entrepreneurship program with over 5000 students and close to 200 teachers in nearly 50 schools across Australia bending the future, one youth-led idea at a time.
The Future Anything National Grand Final 2022 will showcase the most innovative, scalable, and sustainable student enterprise ideas. This year, Future Anything is also recognising the legends behind the students, our Activate educators.
The second annual Future Anything Educator Awards celebrate the teachers who’ve not only led Activate in their classroom but who have lived it through their own entrepreneurial approach to teaching and learning.
Winners will share in over $10,000 of prizes to support their schools’ entrepreneurial aspirations. The winners will be unveiled at the high profile Future Anything National Grand Final on 21 November 2022.
