ESHIP.1 - Problem Pitch Competition

Identifying problems is the first step towards being a change-maker. Before you can fix something, you need to understand the issue. With a chance to win one of several $500 prizes, this competition will allow you to choose an unsolved problem and explain why it has not been solved yet.


The fall 2023 problem competition will be held in person.

Submit your entry here before September 14 at 8AM.

The competition will be September 19 at 6PM in JEC 5119.
