DellChallenge.org will act as an educational innovation community where university students, academia, primary/K12 educators, mentors, judges and fellow students from around the globe can network, share best practices and inspire each other to create educational change. Plus, we offer $30,000 in prizes and awards to help students put their ideas into action!
Any undergraduate or graduate student in any field of study, from any country, can enter our challenge. This is not your traditional business plan competition—students can enter a project at any stage, whether they\’ve just thought of an idea or are already running an organization. Both nonprofit and for-profit ideas are eligible.
How to Enter
To enter the Dell Education Challenge, student innovators must submit their Project Idea with the minimum required fields, by October 24, 2012. You will need to register or login and complete you Student Profile to get started.
