Abstract

Please join the members of the Maurice Challenge Committee at this reception to celebrate the Maurice Challenge Competition*, including the presentation of the $5,000 award to the student winner(s) of the 2015 competition, followed by a brief overview of the winning project by its students. Take a moment between the poster sessions in Werner to learn more about the competition, its student winners, and how more students might participate. *This unique competition offers WOU students a rare opportunity to win an unrestricted cash award based on their ability to define a problem of importance to them, and to pursue solving that problem without restrictions on their creativity, innovation, or execution. Ultimately, the competition intends to help students broaden their knowledge about themselves and their abilities, as well as learn more about the global community. The winner(s) are chosen by the Committee based on the a) innovation, design, and execution of the project over its implementation, b) depth of knowledge gained through the student’s project, c) impact of the project on the campus and community, and d) the quality, clarity and appropriateness of the analysis report and presentation to the committee.
