Terms & Conditions


About the Competition

The competition is only open to students in years 7 to 10.



  • Students will participate in a competition, which is designed to help them apply the concepts learned on the day by developing an idea for their own AI technology project
  • Students will break into pairs for this work, with one pair ultimately representing the class with their “AI solution”



  • Students are to be divided into pairs. Students should spend no more than 10 minutes in their pairs brainstorming the following question and coming up with their AI solution, based on what they have learned during the day
    • Year 7 & 8 – How can AI be used to improve something in your school?    
    • Year 9 & 10 – How can AI be used to improve something in your community?   
  • Each pair will be asked to write their AI solution on a whiteboard or butcher’s paper. They don’t need too much detail, a sentence or two will be enough. 
  • Students will then be asked to vote for the best AI solution.  
  • Note – each pair has one vote only and they cannot vote for themselves. To place their vote, each pair will simply place a tick next to the idea they are voting for. If the votes are tied on more than one winner, teachers will ask the pairs to vote again – this time only for one of the tied entrants.  
  • Teachers will then facilitate a whole-class brainstorm session to flesh out the winning solution. 
  • Once the class has workshopped these questions (available in Educator Pack), the winning pair of students will outline their thinking by addressing these questions in a short video. 
  • Only one video can be entered per class. 


About the filming and uploading

  • The video should be recorded on a mobile phone. Please note the video cannot be longer than 3 minutes so keep an eye on the final length! 
  • Once the video is recorded, please upload it to the Day of AI website (https://dayofaiaustralia.com/) within 24 hours of recording it.  
  • Please refer to Educator Guide here for further information


The competition will close at 5pm on Friday 29 July. No videos uploaded after that date will be received. Please refer to terms and conditions for further information.
