Introducing the REA Ideas Competition

Feb 23 2022

At XPRIZE, we believe that great ideas come from anyone, anywhere. And, as the XPRIZE Racial Equity Alliance launches a brand new competition focused on Education Equity, we want to hear from you.

What does an equitable future look like when it comes to education? How could the next multi-million dollar XPRIZE competition pull that equitable future forward? 

WHAT IS THE IDEAS COMPETITION?

The Racial Equity Alliance is proud to introduce the Ideas Competition, presented by Intel, a five-month, $50,000 competition to generate ideas for future XPRIZE competitions with the goal of advancing educational equity in the United States. 

Education is a fundamental driver of change. It is an active investment in human capital. When done intentionally and equitably, education promotes greater public health outcomes, increases creativity, boosts economic advancement, and plays a critical role in eliminating historic inequities within society. 

WHAT KIND OF IDEAS CAN I SUBMIT?

Competitors in the Ideas Competition will be asked to describe an educational challenge specific to their community and/or the US at large and explain how their competition idea could help drive positive and impactful solutions to that key challenge.

Up to 10 winning ideas will be selected and winners will share a total prize purse of $50,000. Winners will also have the opportunity to showcase their ideas to Alliance sponsors, partners, and members of the Brain Trust. One of the winning ideas may even become the next XPRIZE Competition. 

The Ideas Competition launched on February 24, 2022 and the deadline to register is June 3, 2022. Winners will be announced in August of 2022.
