The Premier's Coding Challenge is an annual state-wide initiative for all Queensland students in Year 3 to Year 10. The Premier's Coding Challenge aims to encourage an interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) in Queensland students.
The theme for 2022 is #digitalfuturesqld. Technologies is an ever-growing industry that will impact the future world of work. Who better to explore the technology skills required for the readiness in a changing world than our budding Queensland developers and designers, aspiring engineers and young innovators?
The challenge in 2022 is to raise awareness of digital careers and help educate Queenslanders on how important digital technologies are for 21st century citizens.
Students may address digital futures topics such as:
- predicting jobs of the future
- how future technology may change our lives
- the importance now and in the future of:
- personal security and safety online
- adhering to social media ethics and protocols.
Entrants can develop an app, game, animation or website, and they must submit a short video showcase with their entry.
Students can enter as individuals or as a pair, in one of 8 categories. To see examples of previous winning entries, view the

Winners receive prizes of coding and robotic kits (total prize pool $10,000).
