Call for proposals by 'Dell Social Innovation Challenge 2013'

The dates and deadlines for the Dell Social Innovation Challenge are announced. The competition identifies and supports promising young social innovators who dedicate themselves to solving the world's most pressing problems, and of course sanitation is amongst them. If you are actively enrolled as a student at an accredited educational institution that grants college/university (or equivalent) degrees at any time through May 31, 2013, or have graduated with a degree from an accredited educational institution in the fall semester of 2012 you can apply for the challenge.

There are two categories: Grand Prize Awards and People’s Choice Awards and the project competition has four phases. The Grand Prize Awards are chosen by judges, offering five cash prizes totaling $105,000 and through the People's Choice Awards, $1,000 prizes are offered based on 6 regions and 11 issue areas: Agriculture, Economic Development, Education, Energy, Environment, Food & Nutrition, Health, Human Rights, Poverty, Technology and Water. The Grand Prize Awards, which offer a $50,000 Grand Prize, are open to all categories.

Interesting to notice that some of the prize winners, including the 2012 Second Grand Prize Winner, have addressed sanitation issues in their projects.
