    Youth ImpACT Award Final Ceremony 2017/18 – Innovate Today, Change Tomorrow

    The Youth ImpACT Award (“YIAA”) celebrated the achievements of the ten finalist teams at the Final Ceremony 2017/18 on October 6, 2018 at the Hong Kong Red Cross Headquarters. Attended by 200 like-minded school principals, teachers, NGO colleagues and social innovators, the Ceremony was a showcase of the participating youth’s innovativeness, team work and perseverance.

    The occasion was graced by the presence of judges including Mr. Cheung Wai Hing, Trustee of the Foundation, Mr. Joe Chiu, Committee Member of the Standing Committee of The Boys’ and Girls’ Clubs Association representing the two Co-presenters and two very experienced social innovators, Mr. Kelvin Cheung, Chief Operation Officer of Goodlab and Ms. Wendy Cheung, Senior Manager, Corporate Venture (Partnership & Alliance) of St. James’ Settlement.

    The ten teams of finalists were selected through a pool of more than 300 ideas by online voting, internal screening and a Pitch Day in the past year. The teams shared their prototyping experiences during the summer and reflected on their learning. A common theme running through the teams’ presentation is the importance of determination and continued hard work which brought them thus far. All judges expressed their admiration towards the finalists’ in-depth reflection and encouraged students to carry on being a social innovator to learn and serve. Heartfelt congratulations were also sent to the following award winners:
