WB Prodigy Hunt: Round 1 – Public Voting By Likes

Host: WealthBankers Foundation

Sponsoring Partners: People & Business Media, SCREENS, CyprusUni, WealthBankers Job Arena, MadeItOnline (become a sponsor here)

This round will help select prodigies for Round 2 in their quest to win the WealthBankers Prodigy Hunt. Also, this round will contain contestants who have survived the cut from a thousand (1000) to a hundred (100) prodigies. In this round, votes from the public will whittle the number to the last 50 prodigy contestants. This is to pave the way for the final round which will determine 3 winners.  At this stage, you vote for your favorite prodigy contestant by LIKING their Round 1 videos. These Videos from Prodigies would be uploaded on the WealthBankers Foundation Youtube Channel.

NB: Even though comments do not count as votes in Round 1, we encourage fans to comment as well, as it will show your support for the prodigy's good work.

Details of WB Prodigy Hunt - Round 1


This is the first round of the WealthBankers Prodigy Hunt. Here, the public will be introduced to the prodigy contestants in this session . It will consist of 100 prodigy contestants who made it from submissions. Note that, only 50 prodigy contestants will go on to Round 2.

Number of Videos: In Round 1, we will upload 100 videos on the WealthBankers Foundation youtube channel. The public will vote by LIKING the Youtube Videos of their favorite prodigy contestants (dislikes do not count as votes).

In this Round, the public will be introduced to the 100 prodigy contestants. Each prodigy will tell us about their themselves and their project, how much impact it has had, and is currently having.

Prodigy Contestant's Videos will answer questions like:

  • Where they are from
  • How it all begun
  • What exactly they do/What their Project is about
  • Why they started working on it
  • What they set out to accomplish
  • How they plan to impact the lives of people
  • Educational background
  • What makes their project/ product unique
  • And many more.

For the top 50, making it to Round 2 of the WB Prodigy hunt will depend on questions like these, and how the public would vote through LIKES on the Round 1 Videos. These questions are meant to get the public closer to the prodigy contestants. It's important we get to know them and the mindset behind their projects.

This is the first stage where investors and potential partners will get to see what these prodigy contestants have been doing to impact their communities and the society as a whole.

Prodigy Contestants will actively solicit for votes through our YouTube Channel and other avenues they wish. This round will also have contestant posters with their inventions or projects on social media to solicit for votes.
