Your ideas are worth/ valuable is an aid of ideas destined to the young people and developed in Uruguay last year. We are in front of an initiative of the Government of Uruguay within the framework of Uruguay Thinks and that it is originated to support the entrepreneurship in the subjects of science and technology. We have no doubt that the best form to harness innovation and the development of new ideas is to address the young people and to offer them the opportunity to unleash and free their imagination for the creation of new ideas that help improve everything what surrounds them.
In the your ideas are worth 2007 first edition , prizes were awarded to 21 participants based on their ideas related to the environment, energy, tourism, technology, recycling, etc… One of the first prizes was for a Project on The Wireless Cities. All information on the matter of the awarded ones can be seen in the Web of Uruguay Thinks. Uruguay Piensa.
In addition to the importance that this type of initiatives and organization of ideas activities has in the world of the education of the young people, I believe that it is very important to follow-up and monitor this young people that present/display their projects and ideas, and from the administration side make sure that some of this projects and ideas presented/displayed are fully implemented. To have a good ideas is fine, but to be able to carry out them in the real world is still of greater importance. For me, the funding in this type of contest/awards/prizes would have to be directed to being able to put in practice some of the most innovating ideas which are viable, possible to make and launch.
