Ashoka is partnering with T-Mobile—a creative disruptor in the communications industry—to kick off our second-annual Changemaker Challenge in the U.S. This nationwide challenge gives trailblazing young leaders the stage to share their ideas for creating more connected, sustainable and inclusive communities.
Both Ashoka and T-Mobile believe in the power of young people with bold ideas to create long-lasting impact. In this historic moment of rapid change, we need to support young leaders who are already challenging the status quo to transform their world for good.
The Challenge is open to young changemakers ages 13 to 23 in the U.S. and Puerto Rico. Teams of two or more young people can enter by submitting a project that drives social change in Technology, the Environment or Education until September 26, 2019.
Winners selected by leaders from Ashoka and T-Mobile will receive seed funding and a three-day Changemaker Lab experience in Bellevue, Washington, to support them as they take their projects to the next level. Last year's winning ideas ranged from smashing the stigma of mental health to making hospitals more youth-friendly through art.
