Enter the Big Idea Contest!

Tuesday, March 21st, 2017

Do you have a Big Idea? It can be anything, from a business venture, to an innovative product, to a community development plan. To help nurture and grow your Big Idea, the University Libraries, along with the Center for Undergraduate Research & Creative Activities (CURCA), and UB Provost Charles Zukoski, invite UB undergraduate students to enter our Big Idea Contest.

The student with the best Big Idea, as determined by a panel of judges and the UB community, will win $500 and lunch with UB Provost Zukoski.

Good luck!
