Contest Advisor Information

All NextGen Awards contestants or teams must select a parent, legal guardian, or an individual from a local school or community organization as their Contest Advisor and include their Advisor information in the entry form. The contest advisor must be over the age of 21 and be willing to be a point of contact for the purposes of your NextGen contest entry. If the contestant becomes a NextGen winner, their Contest Advisor will also receive cash awards and international recognition.

NextGen welcomes active involvement and support from a wide diversity of schools, NGO's and community organizations around the world.

The following are some of the ways YOU, your schools, or organizations can help realize the exciting and substantive impact of NextGen:

  1. If you know talented and caring young people in your community, school or organization (between ages 13-20), encourage them to enter the NextGen Awards Contest.
  2. Publicize the NextGen Awards® Contest in your school or organization.
  3. Showcase local NextGen Awards® contestants and their innovative ideas.
  4. Become a NextGen MENTOR to help NextGen winners expand on their ideas and personal potential. (Click here for Mentors Corner.)
  5. Dedicate bulletin boards, web pages, and links for youth oriented educational information featuring quality of life challenges and examples of how mobile phones and people can make a difference.
