Prize for Innovation

2015 SECU Emerging Issues Prize for Innovation

The State Employees’ Credit Union and the Institute for Emerging Issues are proud to sponsor a contest that rewards North Carolina’s young adults for investing in their communities and taking initiative to solve local problems.

Open to undergraduate and graduate students at two- and four-year colleges and universities in North Carolina, the prize will reward proposals that address critical issues affecting our state’s future economic competitiveness and well-being.

Student teams will present innovative solutions to challenges facing N.C. communities in one or more of the following areas: economy, education, the natural and built environments and health. The first place winner will receive $50,000; the runner-up $25,000; two “fan favorites” $10,000 each; and one of IEI’s choice $5,000.

Deadline: December 1st, 2014
