Video competition aims to discover student tech ideas

Students with an idea for a great new technology, innovation or start-up can take it to the next level through a video competition hosted by Ontario Centres of Excellence.

The contest, open to all post-secondary students enrolled at an Ontario university or college, is a chance to put their ideas in front of the movers and shakers of the science and technology industry.

Entries are to be creative three-minute video pitches. The top 25 submissions will be featured by Ontario Centres of Excellence on its Web pages and shown at the Discovery 2012 Conference, May 14 and 15 in Toronto. Winning submissions will receive one of three cash prizes of up to $2,500.
