Through the Make Your Mark competition, we sent out the challenge to young New Zealanders from 5-20 years' old to share their vision of what education might look like in the future.
Up for grabs are grants, scholarships, laptops, and gift card prizes - as well as spot prizes, and the opportunity to attend a Design Lab event with other passionate New Zealanders.
Your inspiring entries – in English and Te Reo Māori – will be shared throughout New Zealand and help guide the next steps for NCEA.
The winners will be announced at an Awards Ceremony at Parliament on Thursday 27 September. This event will also be streamed LIVE on the Ministry of Education's Facebook page.
