Wyeth Nutrition launches inaugural “National Kids’ Innovation Day”

MANILA –Wyeth Nutrition has kicked off the inaugural National Kids’ Innovation Day last Wednesday, a new advocacy to recognize kid innovators dreaming big in the Philippines 

The National Kids’ Innovation Day is planned to be a year-on-year celebration of innovation in children headlined by the nationwide search for Wyeth Nutrition Kid Innovators. The competition is looking for students, grades 4 to 8, who exhibit innovativeness with their Science and Technology-related projects.

The top three winning entries will take home a trophy, a cash prize of P100, 000 and a science-and-technology showcase also valued at P100, 000 for the partner school.


The idea is not just to honor, but also inspire, says Joseph Eugene David, Wyeth Nutrition president and general manager, sparking curiosity for science and out-of-the-box thinking at an early age.

Timed with Wyeth Nutrition’s global centennial celebrations, The National Kids’ Innovation Day event, held at The Mind Museum, Taguig City, honored four young innovators, some as young as 14 years old, who brought home top metals for the country.

The competitions they won include the 2014 International Youth Invention Exhibition Awards in Taiwan, the 2015 Mahidol Wittayanusorn School Science Fair in Thailand, the International Young Inventors Olympiad in Georgia, USA, and the I-SWEEP Olympiad in Houston, Texas, USA.
