Story excerpt provided by the Athens Messenger.
Students will gather Thursday for the kickoff of the third annual Scripps Innovation Challenge, an Ohio University campuswide competition to win $25,000 in prizes for creative solutions to media and communication problems.
The event, from 4-6 p.m. in the Baker Center Ballroom, will feature a “startup simulator” to help students understand what it takes to successfully compete for the cash prizes.
It will provide an opportunity for them to meet fellow competitors and hear from a panel of innovators and entrepreneurs, including a member of the team that took top honors in last year’s Scripps Innovation Challenge.
