DiabetesMine Design Challenge
Diabetes advocate Amy Tenderich is hosting her annual Diabetes Design Challenge, giving you a chance to win funding to help you develop your ideas for new diabetes products or web applications. There are three prizes to be won: a grand prize, an award for the most creative idea, and one for the best kid’s entry. The grand prize includes $10,000 in cash, a mini-workshop with experts at the global design and innovation firm IDEO, and one ticket to the Health 2.0 innovation conference held in San Francisco in October 2009. The most creative idea will receive $5,000 in cash and a consulting session with IDEO, and the best kid’s entry will receive $2,000 in cash. Entries will be accepted until May 1st, 2009, and can take the form of either a 2-minute video or a 2-3 page document describing your idea and showing a prototype with supporting graphics. The contest is now over, but you can look at the contest information here.
