Faculty and teaching staff, as you prepare your spring syllabi, please consider the Innovation in Aging Student Idea Competition on Feb.25, 2021. Is there a way to incorporate students competing in the competition as part of your course? Or, you can help spread the word about the competition by sharing this information with your students in class, via email, posted to your Canvas course site, or helping a student team get formed and progress with an idea. This year is a VIRTUAL competition, so it will be more challenging than usual to disseminate information about the competition and generate student teams. Please consider giving our efforts a boost! It’s the 5th year of this event. Last year 9 UWGB student teams competed from across the campus. Students in all types of majors (e.g., Business, Social Work, PEA, Philosophy, Engineering, etc.), are challenged to identify an aging issue and design an innovative solution. Innovations are broadly defined – a product, service, social approach, etc. Short video of past winning ideas. Reasons for students to participate in the competition: • Chance to win cash prizes (first place team wins $1000) • Chance to creatively solve a real-world problem • Opportunity to work on an interdisciplinary team • Gain experience working on a virtual team • This event is a resume builder! • Student org incentive: The first five teams representing a student org to register receive $100 for their student org. See the registration site for more information. Questions? Contact Brad Ricker (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Ryan Kauth (email@example.com).
