The Peace Institute would like to invite visitors and competitors to our Social Innovations Challenge!
Groups of 2-3 students will choose ONE world problem to solve: poverty, environmental issues, or promoting peace/justice. They will prepare a solution from their perspective. Students will prepare a physical and oral presentation which will be demonstrated to a panel of judges with research about the problem. The physical display may be presented in any way the group decides such as a tri-fold board, digital format, video animation or physical model. The oral presentation must be 5-10 minutes long, with additional time for question from judges.
Winning teams from each age group will be awarded a $1000 Grant to implement the project and each member of the team will receive a $1000 Scholarship for a Spain/Turkey Trip in August 2019!
The deadline to apply for the challenge is on April 6th, 2019.
The deadline to turn in a program summary is April 20th, 2019.
