Eight school teams have been awarded in the National Education and Entrepreneurship Awards Future Minds 2024, organized by the Government of Asturias, Valnalón and Genyus School, and sponsored by Unicaja. The winners have presented innovative and sustainable projects, such as a hearing aid to translate languages, a school vehicle or a device to reduce traffic accidents.

 

The award ceremony was held at the Laboral Center for Art and Industrial Creation in Gijón, as part of the 1st National Festival of Education and Entrepreneurship - Future Minds Fest 2024. Unicaja, as one of the sponsors of the event, presented the National Primary School Award in the Viability Category to the Alto Nalón Rural Grouped School (CRA) (Asturias) for the proposal ‘La escuela va al mercáu', focused on students with heart conditions.

 

Unicaja’s head of Northern Commercial Banking, Luis Taboada, and the head of the Eastern Asturias Zone, Ana Fonseca, presented this award, which values such important aspects as a solid business plan, considering financial aspects, necessary resources and the possibility of carrying out the idea effectively.

 

"For Unicaja it is an honor to support these awards that promote the entrepreneurial culture of our students, protagonists of the development and future of our country, an initiative aligned with our commitment as a financial institution for companies and entrepreneurs," said Taboada.
