Project 10 to the 100

Posted by: Skylar In: internet coverage|news

Google Inc.  is sponsoring a new competition to promote technologies that can improve the lives of those around the globe.  The company is offering $10 million dollars, split between up to five finalists who submit a google-worthy idea.  Here’s the challenge:

If you have an idea that you believe would help somebody, we want to hear about it. We’re looking for ideas that help as many people as possible, in any way, and we’re committing the funding to launch them. You can submit your ideas and help vote on ideas from others. Final idea selections will be made by an advisory board.

This competition is just billowing with potential for any aspiring and inventive civil engineers out there, especially with so much recent publicity surrounding the world’s water crisis.  So put your thinking caps on, and head over to their site to read more.  Note that the deadline for submissions is October 20th, so there’s not much time to perfect your plan!
