Launching this fall is the MIT Global Challenge, a contest that furthers the IDEAS Competition in funding the best ideas that tackle community problems around the world.
The Global Challenge is looking for help pitching the challenge to the MIT community worldwide. They’re hosting a video contest for the best two-minute clip that invites the MIT community to participate in and support innovative ideas through the Global Challenge.
The contest is open to anyone, but teams must be led by full-time MIT students and all entries must be submitted by an MIT student. The winning entry will receive $1,500 and be featured in the fall 2010 launch of the MIT Global Challenge. The deadline to enter the competition is Sept. 1.
Presented by the MIT Public Service Center, MIT150 and the MIT Alumni Association, the MIT Global Challenge is an innovation and entrepreneurship competition powered by the social web.
