Regional Contest Overview
Currently enrolled graduate and undergraduate students from accredited New York colleges and universities in the Finger Lakes Region are encouraged to submit the written application around a student-born innovation that is designed for a currently unmet need. The Regional Contest does not require the submission of a full business plan. All applications must be submitted online (click “Apply” button to the right). The deadline to enter the 2018 Competition has passed (March 11th, 2018).
Applications should be no longer than two (2) typed pages. Please be as brief as possible, while still providing the necessary information.
Submissions must fall under one of the following six categories:
- Information Technology / Software
- Social Entrepreneurship / Non-Profit
- Clean Technology
- Advanced Technology
Regional Contest finalists will be invited to give a 10-minute presentation followed by 5 minutes of Q&A from a panel of regional judges in April. This is a free event that is open to the public and teams are encouraged to invite friends and faculty. Winners of the prizes will be announced on the day of the competition.
