The University and Texas and Dell are looking for groundbreaking ideas from college students around the globe in the annual Dell Social Innovation Competition. These ideas and ventures address a pressing social issue such as human rights or global health. The grand prize-winning project receives $50,000 to put plans into action.
Past winners include Gardens for Health, an organization that improves the nutrition, health and treatment of people living with HIV/AIDS through sustainable agriculture, and SolarCycle, which produces sustainable, durable and affordable solar cookers and water pasteurizers using a material made of used plastic bags and the aluminized insides of potato chip bags.
