Michael Nixon wins Regional Pitchfest

13-YEAR-OLD Michael Nixon emerged victorious from a vast field of innovators at Regional Pitchfest held in Wagga Wagga last Wednesday. 

Five other competitors pitched to a panel of experts for a cash boost for their start-up but their ideas didn’t hold a match to Michael’s whose passion for technology earned him the winning cheque for $5000 as well the people’s choice award worth $2500.
