2023 Premier's Coding Challenge winners announced

The 2023 Premier’s Coding Challenge awards ceremony has been held in Brisbane, with 22 STEM students acknowledged.

This year, the annual state-wide challenge received a total of 424 entries from 114 schools.

The theme was #digitalinnovationqld and students were encouraged to create positive change in their local community and beyond by examining real-world problems and responding with innovative digital solutions.

Entering as individuals or pairs, students could develop an app, game or website alongside a short video to explain and evaluate their entry.

Themes chosen by entrants this year included: being safe online, healthy living, creating a sustainable future and supporting people with disability.

Each winning student received a robotics or electronics kit, a tour of QUT facilities, a tailored feedback session with experts and a framed award certificate.

“These talented young students represent the future of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education in Queensland,” said Education Minister Grace Grace.

“STEM skills are a vital focus for education in Queensland so it’s great to see these young people engaging with them and taking hold of a real opportunity to make their voice heard.”
