About the Competition
The challenge will award cash prizes, sponsored travel, mentorship, and the opportunity to work with and present to leading companies and investors. The challenge runs concurrent with the 2017-2018 academic year, with initial submissions due by December 1st, 2017 and finalists presenting at Stanford University in April, 2018.
Promoting lifelong healthy habits is about much more than just physical wellbeing, and includes actions and behaviors at all ages. For example, financial security begins with practices and attitudes that individuals engage in from their 20s and onward. Additionally, regular community and social engagement are positive indicators of future health and life satisfaction.
