The Pioneer Prize

The Pioneer Prize has been established by members of the community to motivate and celebrate the remarkable capacity of our young people to forge new pathways of economic opportunity.

By recognizing and rewarding their independent passions in the area of software, we hope to foster a growing local community of high-value skills. We chose software because of its profound reach and impact in our society and because it offers

  • high economic potential
  • proven examples in the community
  • well-developed self-learning tools

In the future, the prize may extend to other areas that offer similar benefits. We aspire to make this an annual prize, and to extend its reach over time. If you have questions, or would like to help, please contact us below.

We gratefully acknowledge the contributions of many in the community to breathe life into this initiative. Thank you.
