The Quest2Matter: The Contest Where the World Wins
Today’s young people form the most compassionate generation this world has known.
We have partnered with TopCoder, KidBlog, and YourSphere who have built incredible sites that accept student Quests and have invited millions of students bloggers and world agents to showcase their genius ideas, innovations, and solutions to the worlds most challenging problems.
Their contributions will be supported by one of the world's most elite network of innovators and leaders; The Business Innovation Factory or BIF for short. BIF wil act as our "shark tank" by selecting the top most game changing ideas from kids and work with students as real time mentors to scale and make possible their execution. The top student idea will be presented at their annual conference (BIF 9) in September. We will also be honoring the power of the student voice at this years Bammy Awards in Washington DC, where one student world change agent will be honored with the first every Student Bammy.
What matters to you?
What about it breaks your heart?
Let's act to change that.
Let's change OUR world.
Join Angela to discover how these students are being challenged to change our world and to learn all about the Quest2Matter and ways you can get involved!
