Future Prize is an opportunity for Middle School students in Grades 6-8 to design solutions to a real-world challenge and pitch their solutions in a competition with other CIS Ontario Schools. How might we empower students to solve the world’s big problems? In our rapidly changing world, students increasingly need to be creative, curious, empathetic, and resilient. The Future Prize Challenge introduces middle school students to design thinking and innovative problem-solving methods that foster critical thinking and compassion. The event includes a design thinking workshop for teams of students and teachers, an action-packed day of designing solutions, and an exciting final “pitch” of solutions to a panel of expert judges.
