The Health Make-a-Thon is a competition for makers, citizen scientists, and anyone in the state of Illinois with ideas for improving human health. A panel of experts from the University of Illinois and beyond will review submissions and choose the best. Finalists will pitch their ideas for a chance to win $10,000 in Health Maker Lab resources to create a real prototype of their idea.
A handful of winners will be selected from the presenting group.
If you’re a winner, you’ll receive access to the Health Maker Lab network, $10,000 in idea support, and mentorship by experts throughout the University of Illinois. Your idea will become a reality through prototyping. Will it sink or swim?
Submission are being accepted now through January 6, 2020 at https://healthmakerlab.medicine.illinois.edu/competition/ .
