4:30-5 PM - Program to let you know what to look forward to, including:

About the Social Innovation Challenge

The annual UVU Social Innovation Challenge starts each September, provides workshops monthly during fall, and concludes with pitches from our finalists at an exciting awards competition in December. Last year's topic was water and we had dozens of great entries--we think this year's topic is going to be just as compelling.

Participating in the UVU Social Innovation Challenge offers you hands-on experience working to identify and research a social problem and gaps in the solutions market. This is a great place to start if you want to save the world. Don’t miss this opportunity to meet other aspiring innovators, share ideas, meet past winners, learn about the competition and formulate teams.



Who can compete?

Any student of a Utah college or university is welcome to compete in the challenge!
