Competition: Win a trip to Canada and $30,000 in the World’s Challenge Challenge

Students are being invited to take part in this year’s World’s Challenge Challenge.

This global competition provides students from universities across the world with the exciting opportunity to engage in discussion and debate about world issues, and to bring ideas from many different perspectives to the table.

To enter, all you need is an idea of how to tackle a significant global issue that affects us all.

Last year’s overall winner was SheCycle, from the University of Waterloo. SheCycle is an initiative to introduce a unique antimicrobial reusable sanitary pad that can be locally sourced and distributed in Uganda, helping improve health, access to education and work for local women.

How to enter

If you’re interested in finding out more, Careers & Employability will be hosting an introductory session, where you can learn more about the competition and meet potential team members. This session will be held on 6 February, 5pm-7pm in the Careers Studio. Students should sign-up for this event via Career Hub.

There will be no obligation to take part in the competition following this session, it’s just a chance to find out more, and pizza will also be provided!

Those who are interested in participating in the competition following the session will be required to:

  • form teams of 2-4
  • submit a synopsis of their chosen issue or problem and how their ideas will contribute to addressing it
  • develop a 5-7 minute pitch.

One team will then be chosen to represent the University of Liverpool at the final in Canada. The winning team members will each receive $1,000 and have the opportunity to compete for the top prize of $30,000.
