Participate in the World Series of Innovation – Help Solve the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals!

Students: Use your entrepreneurial mindset to help solve BIG problems and help others!

What is the World Series of Innovation?

The World Series of Innovation is an annual contest that invites students to practice thinking of original business ideas to address challenges faced by real organizations. This year, students are being asked to help solve six global problems that the United Nations has identified as some of our most serious challenges to humanity.

Who Can Participate?

Any students or young people ages 13-24 are welcome to participate.

Working in teams of 2-3 people, teams will brainstorm solutions to their chosen challenge and create a submission, which consists of a commercial storyboard and script for a 60-second commercial.


When are Submissions Due?

Completed online submissions are due by Thursday, December 15, 2016.

A panel of judges will select the top ten submissions in EACH challenge category. The chosen teams will then get the chance to create the commercial for which they provided a storyboard and script.

How Many Winners Will There Be?

In the end, there will be two winning teams per category: the “People’s Choice” winner, selected by the popular online vote, and the “Adjudicators’ Choice” winner, selected by the sponsoring organization.

Prizes range from $250 to $2,000.
