End Childhood Obesity Looking for Ideas
The Partnership for a Healthier America (PHA), which works with the private sector and honorary chair First Lady Michelle Obama to end the childhood obesity crisis within a generation, is inviting anyone with a great idea for how to end childhood obesity to enter the End Childhood Obesity Innovation Challenge. The winning idea will receive $10,000 to kick-start their idea, and expert advice to turn that idea into a reality.
The End Childhood Obesity Innovation Challenge will solicit ideas from people across the country, score them, and then let America vote online to decide the three finalists. The finalists will win a trip to Washington, DC, where they’ll present their idea at the PHA’s Building a Healthier Future Summit, March 6-8, 2013. Applicants are required to create a video that details their idea in 2 minutes and 30 seconds or less, explaining why their solution is the best. The deadline for applications is noon (Eastern) on Friday, November 16, 2012.
