Please RSVP below for the kickoff at 3pm EST to attend. The zoom webinar link to watch is here. At the kickoff we’ll talk about the competition and set expectations for the weekend. It’ll be short and sweet so you can get right to the action!

Impactful Ideation. Rapid prototyping. Real-world teamwork. That’s the NC State Make-A-Thon experience.

Students compete in teams to create the best solution to a sustainability challenge. Whether it’s about water, waste, energy, transportation or food — that’s up to you and your team to decide.

At the end of the competition, you will pitch your idea to judges from the community and local companies. And, yes, there are prizes for the winning teams: $2,000 for first place, $1,000 for second place and $500 for third place.

The deadline to apply to the Make-A-Thon is January 22, 2021, so register here today for your team’s chance to win up to $2,000 for your sustainable business ideas. Need a team? Just fill out the form and select the option to get matched with other students who also need a team.
