Team Registration Open for Global Innovation Challenge (WMGIC): International and Sustainable Development Challenge
The William & Mary Global Innovation Challenge invites you to participate in our annual international and sustainable development case competition.
Teams of 3 to 5 undergraduate students from universities around the world are invited to join this annual challenge, to be held virtually on Zoom April 1 - 2, 2022. Students of all majors and disciplines are welcome.
This year’s case will center on climate change and human security. Students will develop
innovative solutions to pressing global challenges for the chance to win $6,000 total
in prizes. During the 24-hour competition, students will have the opportunity to network
with industry professionals from government, business, and non-profit organizations.
Established by students at William & Mary in 2017, WMGIC provides undergraduate students worldwide with a platform for open collaboration and discussion with peers, faculty, and knowledgeable professionals to analyze and create sustainable and scalable solutions. The competition increases students' knowledge about the case study, design thinking, innovative processes, and policy entrepreneurship.
WMGIC focuses on four concentration areas within the wider theme of international and sustainable development: 1) governance, 2) social entrepreneurship, 3) technology and 4) business consulting. In conjunction with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, WMGIC’s objective is to generate discussion on development challenges facing today’s global community. We hope to promote the ideation of novel solutions or further rationalize current “best practices.”
Registration is now open, but space is limited. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org before March 25, 2022 if you're interested or have any questions.
