Applications for the Bett Asia School Challenge 2023 are now open. An exciting new initiative for 2023, the Bett Asia School Challenge is a Southeast Asia-wide competition for students aged 7-17, created to promote big-thinking and innovative ideas on a large scale, to help provide solutions for schools and education issues using the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Supported by iTrain Asia, the challenge aims to drive grassroots innovation in schools, and will allow students to showcase their solutions and ideas using four key skills:
- Critical Thinking
The challenge will ask students to imagine solutions for today’s problems to help tomorrow’s world across three unique design challenges based on three of the SDGs:

- Life on Land (SDG 15) for students aged 13-17: Develop an idea to promote the conservation of life on land.
- Climate Action (SDG 13) for students aged 13-17: Develop an action campaign to educate the public about the importance of climate action.
- Winners will receive a coveted Bett Asia School Challenge trophy and exciting prizes!

- Life below Water (SDG 14)
- Life on Land (SDG 15)

- Applicants should be aged between 7-17 years.
- Students will work in teams of a minimum of 3 to a maximum of 10 on their chosen projects at school from mid-July and submit their final project by September 8.
- Finalists will be approached individually so that they can arrange their travel as early as possible.
