Winnovation Awards 2020 finalists announced

South Australian women with a vision to change the world have been recognised for their work and commitment to excellence in the 2020 Winnovation Awards finalists list. Finalists were selected by independent judges from a record field of applicants across categories including science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics.

Nicole Swaine, President of Women In Innovation SA, said the awards elevate and celebrate the role of female innovators across all industries, research institutes and government.

“We had a record turnout this year, perhaps surprising in such a time of uncertainty.

“Feedback from our judges were that they were blown away by the quality and had a very difficult task in making their selections.

“We commend all our entrants who contribute to making South Australia a more innovative state. By innovating, every single one of them creates a ripple effect, creating new opportunities for jobs, furthering research and generally improving our quality of life,” Swaine said.

Finalists include Katie Gloede from STEMfooty, a bespoke integrated program for schools using AFL as the vehicle to engage student (particularly female) participation in the STEM curriculum and pathways; and Eddie Blass from Inventorium, an innovative, fully student-centred online high school option that gets disengaged students back into learning and creating their own future.

A full list of the finalists is available on the Winnovation Awards website and the winners will be announced on 19 November. The usual gala event has been replaced with an online event this year and watch party tickets can be secured using this link.
