Your assignment: Given a budget of $5,000, how would you innovate Riddle?

The Task Force on Innovation and the Dean of Students Office are sponsoring Student Innovation Awards to an individual and team who propose the best ideas to enhance the campus, student life, or academic life. The Student Innovation Awards highlight your creative, problem-solving skills and your digital communication skills.

Write a proposal for your innovative idea (you have access to the Writing Center for help with your proposal). Create a professional, engaging three-minute video (you have access to the Digital Studio for help with the video) that presents your innovative idea. If named a finalist, produce a poster to present your innovative ideas in a short pitch session with judges

Your goal is to persuade the judges that your idea is feasible, necessary, and innovative enough to win.

Awards are $1,000 for an individual winner and $2,000 for a winning team. All finalists will receive a Student Innovation Awards plaque at an awards banquet with campus leadership. In addition, your initiative could be implemented, if funding is available. For more on these awards, and how you can win, start by reading the Rules.
