Global Challenge

What is the Global Challenge?

Compete with students across campus to address social problems. The Global Challenge is a new competition that allows students to explore the implications of a current social issue. 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. We want students 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 recieves $3000, second $2000, and third $1000. Judging will take place on 30 March 2018.
