Do you have an idea about creating something new and different? 

A product, a device, a new way of doing something?

The Innovation Challenge is an annual, team-based competition in creativity and ingenuity for all students at N.C. A&T.

Describe your innovation ... explain it ... tell us how it would work ...

... and how it would make a difference.

Entries are judged on how innovative they are, the quality of presentation, and the practicality and benefits of the solution.

The 2015 competition will begin in fall semester 2014. Details on entering will be posted soon after the semester begins.
