The Builders of the Century challenge prize finalists have been nominated

The Åbo Akademi University Foundation supports “The Builders of the Century” challenge prize. The aim of this challenge prize is to seek solutions to help build a better future for young people. The Builders of the Century challenge prize is organized by 43 Finnish foundations. The prize is the foundations’ gift to Finland as the country celebrates its centenary of independence.

The jury has nominated 15 finalist teams out of 326 interesting ideas and projects. The teams will present their finalized solutions to the jury in the competition final on 6.9.2017. The winners will be announced in the closing ceremony on the so called Foundation Day 1.10.2017.  That’s when the winners’ work really begins: they will use the prize money to start making their solution real.
