Students

Competitions

 At Alpert Enterprises International, we are committed to facilitating, inspiring and celebrating excellence amongst students. The Pegasus Student Program is a sector of AEI dedicated solely to giving motivated, high potential students opportunities to develop further and excel in the academic areas they are most passionate about.

AEI has established special competitions for students, across the humanities, arts, sciences and technology-based areas. These competitions are perfect for students who are motivated to challenge themselves creatively and become more innovative. Excel and you can reap the rewards from short story competitions, robotics and design competitions, and photography competitions, just to name a few. As strong believers in rewarding excellence and creativity, we have cash prizes and more for winners of our competitions.

AEI competitions are awarded twice per year in age-based categories. Each competition is divided into three categories: Under 11 years old (Primary School), 12-14 years old (Years 7-9), and 15-17 years old (Years 10-12).

Competitions are free to enter for AEI Members. Members can email their entry form and competition entry at any time to competitions@alpertenterprisesinternational.com.

A $30 entry fee applies for non-AEI Members for each competition entry. Once the entry fee has been paid, entries can be emailed at any time to competitions@alpertenterprisesinternational.com.
