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 solve 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”.

We’ll reward the project that demonstrates the ‘deepest learning’ with $5000.


Read all guidelines under the tabs above and submit the “Intent to Participate” by October 23rd, 2015 at 4:00 pm.
