Announcement of New Challenge Winners from NSPE
Dear Faculty and Students,
We are pleased to congratulate the winners of the 2013 New Challenge social innovation competition. We are extremely proud of the students from The New School for Public Engagement who have demonstrated a commitment to innovation, collaboration, and social change through the development of their New Challenge projects.
The New Challenge awarded the following students from the New School for Public Engagement with funding:

The attachment describes in brief their projects.
New Challenge is a call for students of The New School who are committed to working on local and global challenges in innovative ways. More than a prize, through mentorship, skills-building workshops, and more, New Challenge fosters and supports innovative student ideas, critical thinking, and action while promoting an understanding of root causes of social and environmental problems affecting our world. The New Challenge is hosted by The Social Innovation Initiative, a cross-divisional program that expands opportunities for students and faculty to engage in interdisciplinary learning, research, and practice that contributes to real-world problem solving.
We look forward to supporting the work of these students, and more student social innovators from The New School for Public Engagement in years to come.
David Scobey, Executive Dean
