The Idea Map

The 2013 Krost Symposium includes a challenge for our incoming class: come up with an idea and a plan to change something for the better in our community.
We are looking for challenges to pose to groups of students for a month of innovative thinking… and the possibility of winning a $500 grant of seed money to bring their idea to full realization.
We welcome your suggestions for something you think needs to be done, and could be done with people and resources we can generate in our community.
For more information and to submit your idea, check out the Idea Map.

Now accepting idea submissions!
Deadline: October 7, 2013.
