The Pitch Day of Youth ImpACT Award (“YIAA”) was held in May and a total of ten very innovative finalist projects were selected. The judging panels, comprising representatives from The D. H. Chen Foundation, The Boys’ and Girls’ Clubs Association of Hong Kong, SIE Fund, Hong Kong Council of Social Services and local NGOs were much impressed with the teams’ great enthusiasm and determination to solve community problems with their creative solutions. A big round of applause to all teams for the time and efforts they have put into their project ideas!
Over the summer, the ten finalist teams will proceed to the third phase and build service prototypes and test out the project ideas. You can find out more about the finalist projects here.
The Foundation would also like to take the opportunity to thank everyone who has voted for the 300+ creative service ideas submitted by over 1,100 secondary school students. Please stay tuned for news about the prototype process in the summer, more updates will be released here and also on the official website of YIAA.
