DKSH Vietnam in collaboration with Ho Chi Minh City Television CafeTek and the authorities of District 11 has successfully organised the finale of “The Next Innovator Contest 2024” to recognise 20 excellent innovative ideas proposed by young talented students aged 9 to 14.

DKSH’s Business Unit Performance Materials and Business Unit Technology have provided expertise and resources which enabled students to gain hands-on experience with advanced laboratory equipment and high-quality materials to create environmentally friendly and health-beneficial products.

The contest started in March and initially attracted nearly 500 students and teachers at the preliminary round. The top 20 teams had a chance to not only enjoy quality consultation with experts from DKSH, science lecturers and practitioners, but also exclusive visits to international and local manufacturers that exemplify doing business with a sustainability mindset.

The activities within “The Next Innovator Contest” are designed to establish a strong scientific foundation for future innovators, which contributes to the national mission set by the Ministry of Science and Technology to enhance the quantity and quality of future scientists in the country. The top 20 teams are also the first 100 members of the “Tomorrow Club,” where their love for science will continue to be fostered and become the inspiration for others to learn.

Hoang Thi To Nga, general manager, Business Unit Performance Materials, DKSH Vietnam said “We believe that educating about sustainability from an early age is crucial for shaping the mindset of future generations. DKSH is grateful for the collaboration with our local partners to provide young Vietnamese students with valuable insights and hands-on experience, which step by step helps them develop a mindset and lifestyle that prioritise sustainable consumption, production, and innovation for both humanity and the environment.”
