For the third and final challenge, the students of Elsinore will contribute to the municipality’s vision of becoming “North Sealand’s most attractive municipality for families with children”. With the municipality’s motto “participation for all” in mind, solutions have been designed, by kids and for kids, to improve access to culture, sports, nature, and art.
Like Elsinore’s prior challenges, the entire school system -almost 5,000 students- have participated, resulting in a total of 58 solutions. After careful consideration by an expert jury panel, 21 shortlisted finalists will participate in next week’s battle on December 14th.
There will be four prizes up for grabs, including the Innovation Award (the main award chosen by the jury), the People’s Choice Award (decided by an audience vote at the battle), the Support Team Award, and the Communication Award (chosen by the project managers based on each team’s overall level of communication).
Part of Boost Elsinore (Boost – Innovativ Skole i Helsingør), Elsinore’s Design to Improve Life Challenge is a fun and educational competition that empowers students to design their own solutions to address societal issues. The local youth formerly designed solutions to improve the city’s physical and mental health and refugee integration processes.
