The Maurice Challenge invites you to:

  • Identify a problem that matters to you.
  • Approach problem-solving in a way that demonstrates your creativity, innovation, and collaboration with others—even if you don’t finish solving the problem.
  • Tell us what you learned about yourself and your abilities, what you learned about the problem, and what you think your project shows us about your own “art of living”.
    • The Award of $5000 will be given to the individual or team demonstrating the deepest learning and problem solving strategy.


      To apply, read the guidelines under the tabs above, and submit an “Intent to Participate” by Oct 27.

      DEADLINE for applications Friday Oct 27th.
