I’m going to be stuck in a meeting all morning, but I’m lucky again that students sent a blog idea into my inbox. Not just any idea, but an exciting bit of news for lovers of competition!
The Huffington Post is sponsoring the Reader’s Choice Awards for the IGNITEgood Millennial Impact Challenge, described as “a nationwide search for ideas to make the world better through service.” Among the 200 social innovators (under the age of 30) who submitted their ideas are TWO who are affiliated with Fletcher. Wow!
The second is that of PhD student Kartikeya Singh, affiliated with ENVenture, which he describes in an email as seeking “to empower youth to participate in the emerging energy entrepreneurship field, whilst simultaneously tackling energy poverty issues in the developing world. Winning this award will launch the pilot in Uganda and will push us into being able to expand to India. ENVenture fellows will create business plans and address the barriers to scaling of decentralized energy technologies in the developing world.” ENVenture is competing in the Green category.
Lucky for Fletcher, you can vote in each of the two categories. The competition ends November 26. Good luck Manjula and Kartikeya!
