The Topic:

With the onset of 21st century, innovation has been the buzz word and technology has contributed much to the innovations.

  2. Corruption
  3. Safety and Security

Choose any area from the above to gather information and build your opinion around it by discussing, reading, observing, researching and ideating about it. On the day of the contest you are requested to come prepared with all required materials and resources which will enable you to build, create and showcase your expression and solution using any one of the following mediums:
