What is the Global Challenge?
The Global Challenge is a new competition that allows students to explore the implications of a current social issue and compete with other students across campus. Tackling global challenges starts with understanding a problem and its wider context rather than jumping straight into a business plan or an idea for a quick fix. Student teams research a social problem and learn to present issues in a way people can understand, share, and learn from. Teams can be comprised of 1-5 students and it is required that at least one member of the team is a BYU student.
First place receives $3,000, second $2,000, and third $1,000. It is anticipated that judging will take place in April 2019.
