  • Purpose. The purpose of this competition is to propose innovative approaches to feeding a growing world population.
  • Creating your proposal. When creating your proposal, think through the following questions:
    • What specific problem are you trying to solve?
    • What is your proposed solution and who is it for?
    • What is the desired outcome?
    • How is your solution different/better than what exists today?
    • How might you implement this solution?
    • What risks or barriers might you face in bringing this solution to market?
  • Make your submission come to life! Your 5-minute video is a chance for your team to bring your ideas to life. Think of it as an elevator pitch and tell us about your proposal in a quick, polished and engaging way. (For reference, here’s a pitch outline).
