Tsakane Sono's 'Heating Kettle Bottle' has taken the winning title in the third annual Junior Innovators Competition hosted at Investec in October 2014.
Tsakane, in Grade 11 at McAuley House in Gauteng, is the recipient of a R60 000 bursary towards tertiary studies at a university of her choice.
"I feel out of this world. Knowing that I am walking away with the R60 000 towards my studies means that I can really do something with my life. Maybe one day my idea could be on the shelves." She plans to study a business-related degree after school.
Second and third place were awarded to Kate Kekana from Sandtonview Combined for her 'Take Away-inator', and Sesethu Mngcina from Sophumelela Secondary for her 'Personalised Plug'.
