Event description
A competition to gather, educate, and challenge young aspiring changemakers to plan out human-center solutions. oh, and there's food, too!

About this Event

We believe that making a positive impact in your community shouldn’t be defined by your age, grades, or school that you attend. We believe that you are more than just a student. You know the problems in your community better than we do and we want to help you solve them.

Who can Participate?

Any aspiring changemakers, students aged 15 - 22, are able to participate in this competition. You can come as a team (group of 4), or form a team with people that you meet on the day of the competition.

Your projects don't end here. We provide the learning experiences, tools, community, and mentorship to actualize your community project. If you're interested in making your project come alive during the summer of 2020, we would love to work with you to make it happen (and get paid to do it!). We'll also be reaching out as well!
