Encourage students to register for ‘Innovation in Aging’ competition

Student sign-up is underway for the new Innovation in Aging Student Idea Competition. Within this contest is an opportunity to put the UW-Green Bay problem-focused mission to the test. Student teams are challenged to think critically and design a solution to an aging issue of their choice (e.g., propose a product, service, social approach, environmental redesign, etc.). The competition is open to UW-Green Bay students from all colleges and academic areas. Encourage students to sign up in teams of 3-5 students (or sign up as an individual looking for a team).
