Award Structure

Award Structure


World Summit will be held virtually for the second year in a row in 2021. As in 2020, we will award prizes to support the learning of as many of our stakeholders as possible.


Judges will select 12 finalist teams from around the world.  

These finalists are invited to pitch live online during Technovation's World Summit (a virtual event for 2021).

Each team member will receive a $500 USD educational stipend (unrestricted, to be used to further the individual’s learning at their own discretion).

Previously, only Grand Prize teams were awarded monetary prizes.


At our global World Summit event, judges will select 2 Grand Prize Winners for Technovation Girls – one from each division. There is no additional monetary prize for these awards.


Additionally, Technology and Social Impact special recognition will be given to teams in each division. One finalist or regional winner team will be selected in the People’s Choice award as well. There is no additional monetary prize for these awards.

*Please note that all Finalist Teams will receive educational scholarships, so no monetary award will be given for the teams who are awarded the Grand Prizes or Special Recognitions.



In 2021, we will select 10 Regional Winners for Technovation Girls.

There will be a Senior and Junior Division Winners for each of these 5 regions: Africa, Asia & Oceania, Europe, North America, and Latin America.

 For the 2021 season, Technovation will give two additional special awards.

One award will recognize a team tackling Climate Change and another special award will recognize a team who uses artificial intelligence in their app.

All teams who submit will be eligible to receive these prizes — teams do not need to be regional winners or finalists to qualify.
