What is the Accenture Innovation Awards?

Why would you want to start your AIA18 journey as an organizer of the Junior Innovation Challenge? 

We believe that innovation and good ideas are not only reserved for adults, companies and institutions.

That is why we will be organizing the Junior Innovation Challenge for the fourth time this year. The Junior Innovation Challenge is a contest for youngsters (10-16 years old), where they get the opportunity to think about innovation in The Netherlands. By submitting an idea in the form of a video pitch they can participate in this competition. The winner will see their own idea realized!

Partners: scouting and maintaining the contact with innovative partners who want to contribute to the Junior Innovation Challenge.

Events: organizing the events within the Junior Innovation Challenge.

Corporate challenges: developing corporate challenges, in collaboration with partners and consultants, which will be presented to groups of young people during the final.

Marketing: promoting the Junior Innovation Challenge, both internally and externally.

Communication: coordinating and executing the internal and external communication to the jury, ambassadors, schools, participants, partners, press etc.


What can we offer you?

Experience within a large international consultancy firm; in which you can build a broad network consisting of Accenture's employees, partners, and clients.

A work environment with a focus on your personal development, in which you will get a lot of responsibility.

The opportunity to be part of a young and vivid team of ambitious interns and leads.

Partial responsibility for the organization of the Accenture Innovation Awards 2018, in which you get to know world's best innovative start-ups and companies.
