Youth ImpACT Award 2.0 2019/20 Results Announcement
Co-presented by The D. H. Chen Foundation (“the Foundation”) and The Boys’ & Girls’ Clubs Association of Hong Kong (“BGCA”), The Youth ImpACT Award 2.0 (“YIAA 2.0”) celebrated the achievements of the eight finalist teams during the online Final Pitch on December 12, 2020.
With the aim of offering local youth the opportunity and platform to learn and tackle social issues by generating and implementing innovative ideas through design thinking, YIAA 2.0 has attracted over 1,000 secondary school students to participate with more than 220 ideas created in the past year. The eight teams of finalists were selected by the vetting committee and the public through online voting. Prototyping was conducted from September to November 2020.
This year, judges included Mr. Cheung Wai Hing, Trustee of the Foundation, Mr. Charles Chan, Executive Director of BGCA, and two very experienced social innovators, Mr. Bird Tang, Co-founder and Director of VolTra and Mr. Leo Chan, Service Development Manager of Woopie Social Enterprises. They were all impressed by the participants’ innovativeness, in-depth reflection and idea refinement throughout the process despite the challenging environment during COVID-19. They encouraged students to carry on their journey as social innovators to learn and serve a wider community.
