Creative Thinkers with Bold Ideas: Prize Competition to Identify Audacious Goals

So reads the title of a notice from NEI about their Challenge to Identify Audacious Goals in Vision Research and Blindness Rehabilitation … essentially an essay contest.

Truly. Specifically, NEI seeks “~1-page entries (4000 characters maximum, including spaces) from the general public, not just those typically engaged in vision research … [describing] audacious goals in any area relevant to NEI’s mission.”

The NEI will select up to 20 winners to receive a $3,000 cash prize and will host the winners at the NEI Audacious Goals Development Meeting (Feb 24-26, 2013).

You can learn more and submit your entry at the Challenge Website.

Submission deadline is November 12, 2012.
