Getting your school involved

Recognising your contribution


These awards acknowledge the efforts of our forward thinking primary and secondary school teachers and principals to prepare students for the future.

We’re looking for the best learning experience encouraging creativity, innovation or entrepreneurialism in students.


It could be…

  • A cool idea for a new business or product
  • A clever way to solve an existing problem
  • A creative project to benefit your community or school.

The only limit is their imagination!

An empowering creative challenge for your students

The Hunter Young Business Mind Awards is an empowering, unique learning and personal development opportunity for your students to leverage.
