This prize was created specifically to promote AMERICAN CORNERS in the diferente scientific fields, and to give a voice to students who want to share their world vision and ideas to improve today's society.
To participate, all you have to do is record a video (e.g. using a mobile phone), upload it to YouTube, and then send an email with your personal information and the link to the video to email@example.com. The video should showcase an innovative idea/project that deserves to be heard and amplified to improve today's society. Two finalists will be selected from each American
Corner institution (a total of 7 = 14 finalists). They will then present their ideas to the public in a TEDx event that will take place at IST in June.
Two winners be chosen, each of whom will receive the prize of a one-week trip to the USA, with a program of tailored to meet their specific interests.
The competition is open to all students (current and former), teachers, and researchers in higher education institutions with an American Corners partnership.
