Wege Prize for Undergraduates

Now in its third year, Wege Prize is a yearly transdisciplinary design competition that gives teams of five undergraduate students the chance to work collaboratively, using design thinking principles, and contend for $30,000 in total cash prizes, all while helping to show the world what the future of problem solving looks like. Teams must work across institutional and disciplinary boundaries to develop a product, service, or business model that can function within and contribute to a circular economy, a tightly looped, restorative economic cycle where resources can be re-adapted for use without limiting the desirability of products or the loss of revenue.
