End Childhood Obesity Innovation Challenge

Next March, the  Partnership for a Healthier America (PHA),  which works with the private sector and its honorary chairwoman First Lady Michelle Obama to solve the nation’s childhood obesity crisis, will bring together more than 1,000 leaders from public, private and non-profit organizations, all committed to solving the childhood obesity crisis in America. This year’s agenda will feature a new program– the End Childhood Obesity Innovation Challenge– and you are invited to submit your ideas.
This challenge is designed to enable anyone  (parents, kids, organizations, businesses, teachers, etc.) to turn their great idea on ending childhood obesity into a solution. The End Childhood Obesity Innovation Challenge is an online contest meant to solicit ideas – not business plans. All submissions are due by noon on Friday, November 16.

Three finalists will be flown to Washington, D.C., to pitch the attendees and a panel of judges at the Building a Healthier  Future Summit, March 6-8. 
The winner will receive $10,000, expert support from management consultants, entrepreneurs and marketing/PR professionals, and a meeting with Fortune Magazine to help turn their idea into a reality.
