Verge Lafayette / West Lafayette Message Board › Schurz Innovation Challenge
Hey Verge WL Members,
If you like watching young entrepreneurs pitching innovative ideas, you should definitely check out this opportunity next week. The people putting on the Schurz Innovation Challenge at Purdue University are looking for audience members to partially participate in the judging process. 6 teams from Purdue will be pitching there ideas after a dinner provided for contestants, judges, and registered audience members. More information below:
All - The Schurz Innovation Challenge will be judged on Monday April 22. Judging will begin at 5:30 in the Lawson building. Dinner will be provided starting at 4:30 for contestants, judges, and registered audience members. We're including a "fan favorite" prize on top of the other prizes to be awarded - THIS IS WHERE YOU COME IN.
We would like to gather an audience of approximately 25-30 people to vote by clicker for the fan favorite. This favorite will win an additional $500 prize. In the event of a tie among the 6 judges for the other prizes, the audience vote will break the tie. So if you're willing, come join us for dinner and judging - please send an email to Innovation Challenge (at sign) purdueicc.org indicating that you are willing to attend. We'll stop taking audience registrations when we reach 30 responses due to limited space.
Thanks, and I to see some of you there representing Verge! Also, stay tuned to find out more about our next meetup, tentatively planned for May 2nd.
