CHALLENGE WINNERS, 2016

Why should I vote? This year is the most important election year in the lives of millennials. Many feel disappointed and ignored. Some still face barriers in getting to the polls even though this generation of Americans is more diverse than ever.

Innovation M asked young people to find a solution to these problems. The event included two experiential learning courses, an inspirational three-day conference, and a 24-hour challenge to encourage young people to vote. The winners received up to $5000 in cash prizes. NBCUniversal and Telemundo sponsored Innovation M.
