The application is open from 15th of October and will close at 5pm on Saturday 18th.
What is the Social Impact Challenge?
The Lenovo Social Impact Challenge is an opportunity for 2014 One Young World delegates and returning ambassadors to compete for both cash and Lenovo product awards, which will enable and support them to make their initiative successful.
By filling out a short application, delegates are encouraged to inspire change across the globe. The contest runs from Wednesday, October 15th through lunch time on Saturday, October 18th.
Why are we doing this?
It’s simple. We are doing this for you. Lenovo believes in social change and we feel that technology enables us to make and maintain strong connections around the globe. So why not learn from others who are inspired to make a difference in the environment, education, social justice, global business and more – for any issue that can use some financial support and technology to accomplish a new dream.
What is it for?
This is for those who are actively looking for ways to reach their goals and make a difference. There is one Gold Award winner, three Silver Award winners, and fifty Bronze Award Winners (see prizes below) and all will receive products made with you in mind, so you have one less thing in the way of making a change.
Inspire Change with:
Gold Award (1):
$5K cash + $20K worth of Lenovo products
Silver Award (3):
$5K worth of Lenovo products
Bronze Award (45):
1 Lenovo tablet or phone
Gold and Silver winners will be announced at the closing ceremony. First 25 Bronze awards will be announced 2 weeks prior to the summit (3rd Nov), the remaining 20 will be announced after a further 2 weeks (24th Nov).
