Stuck inside and looking for a challenge? We've got you covered! In light of the recent campus restrictions, we want to offer a fun contest to our students. This is designed to get you to thinking about problems and opportunities facing society today, all from the comfort of your home. We’re encouraging students to think about innovative solutions to problems we are all facing right now, especially during this pandemic. These ideas can be simple life hacks or other creative ideas with the potential for commercialization or to become a business.


We are awarding (4) $150 cash prizes* in the following categories:


MOST UNIQUE/WILD IDEA

Do you have a wild idea that has potential to become a business?

BEST LIFE HACK
Do you have a life hack idea that simplifies everyday life, especially during this pandemic?

BEST PANDEMIC-RELATED IDEA

BEST CAMPUS INNOVATION
