A circus program to help build self-esteem among teenagers in regional towns, teaching mums handyman skills, to uniting the young and old through the power of music, are just some of the entries received in week one of NESCAFÉ HEADSTART 2015.
The NESCAFÉ HEADSTART campaign, launched last month, helps young people bring their bright ideas to life. It could be an idea that could kickstart their career, make a difference in the world or simply be just for fun. The idea could be an arts project, a social cause, writing a travel blog, the latest game or business.
“We launched NESCAFÉ HEADSTART just over a week ago and already we’ve seen some impressive entries,” says Rebecca Dobbins, Head of Marketing, Beverages for Nestlé Australia.
“I’m impressed by the creativity in the ideas and the passion that lies behind them. We are very excited by some of these ideas and would hope that the students see them through, whether they win the ultimate prize or not.”
Throughout the competition, entrants will be encouraged to gather votes through social media to help them win the People’s Choice Award and a place in the live Finals Event. A panel of judges will also choose nine other finalists who will pitch their idea to a live audience at the University of NSW on September 10.
The winning team will receive $15,000 to help fund their idea.
Entries close on August 24. For more information visit www.nescafé.com.au/headstart
