The Solve-A-Thon is a competition to pitch projects that address the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGS) and promote positive change in students’ schools and communities. After all of the projects have been pitched, judges will award $1,000 mini-grants to winning ideas!

The Solve-A-Thon is divided into three sections, with both asynchronous and synchronous components:

  • The Prep Work (Estimated completion time: 60 mins – Completed asynchronously prior to the event)
  • The Project Proposal (Estimated completion time: 60 mins – Completed asynchronously prior to the event)
  • The Solve-A-Thon Project Pitch Competition (August 12th from 9:00AM – 3:00PM – Join live for coaching workshops to refine your project idea, develop your pitch, and network with other changemakers. The event will conclude with a Pitch Tank where you’ll have the opportunity to pitch your project idea to a panel of judges for a chance to win mini-grant funding!)

Teamwork and collaboration are strongly encouraged. All members of a team, including adult allies, should register individually.
