Area high school students looking to earn cash prizes for their business and technology
ideas can now enter Trine University's annual Innovation Challenge competition.
High school students must submit projects by Feb. 2 to be considered.
Presented by Trine innovation 1, the Challenge offers top prizes of $1,000 and second
prizes of $500 prizes for the top new ideas or improved concepts for business or technology
submitted by high school students.
There is no entry fee. Registration is available at trine.edu/i1challenge.
Finalists will present their projects on Feb. 16 to a panel of judges in a format
similar to popular television pitch shows. Students may choose to make their presentation
in person or remotely.
Entries in the business category should focus on a new business idea or service. For
the technology innovation category, participants are encouraged to think about technological
inventions or advances.
