Event description


You're Invited

On January 26th, join us as we award this year's winners of the FuturizeX 2nd Annual Student Challenge. We challenged Bruins to identify a major problem facing L.A. and develop one new and amazing invention or technology to address it. Over 600 students signed-up to participate. Now, only six finalists will move on to the final round to present their ideas to a live audience and an expert panel of judges for a chance to win $4,000, a virtual reality viewer, and spend a day at Google Los Angeles.

Winners will be scored by an expert panel of judges based on predetermined judging criteria with 15% of the total score delegated to you with a live audience vote.
