RVTTI launched a competition to uncover the best innovation by students in TVET
institutions in East Africa. It targets innovative technology solutions in all TVET areas including but not limited to: engineering technologies, medical and pharmacy; food and nutrition; enterprise and
business processes and ICT.
Eligibility: This competition is open to All RVTTI Students, and to students currently learning in any TVET institution in Kenya and the East Africa ONLY (Not open to university students).

The winner will receive a cash reward of KShs. 200,000, and runners up, KShs.100,000 and KShs. 50,000 respectively. The best RVTTI student innovation will receive KShs. 50,000
even if it does not win the best overall 3 positions. All prizes will be awarded at the 7th RVTTI
International TVET and Interdisciplinary Conference on 21-22 June, 2018 in Eldoret, Kenya. The
top 5 selected innovators will also be highlighted in the RVTTI website, and will present and
exhibit their innovations during the conference. (RVTTI students are eligible for all categories of awards, but can only win one award).

All qualifying submissions will be reviewed by a panel of judges consisting of experts
in submitted technology areas and the industry. The goal is to promote and nurture student
problem resolving innovations at tertiary level which will enhance commercialization and
generation of wealth, employment and youth entrepreneurship.

The student innovators (or their sponsors), should commit themselves to cater for
all costs for developing their innovations. Candidates also take responsibility for providing the
RVTTI TVET Innovation Award Team with any information necessary for the evaluation of their
project and to also ensure that all information provided is true, accurate and not misleading.
