What is a current or emerging problem that can be solved by connecting more devices and everyday objects to the Internet or other networks?

If you’re a young woman between the ages of 13 and 18 who likes to take a creative approach to projects – the Cisco Internet of Things World Forum Young Women’s Innovation Grand Challenge is for you!

The program is designed to encourage young women to drive innovation and promote their interest in science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM) fields. The aim of the challenge is to recognize, promote, and reward young innovators as they come up with new uses for Internet of Things technologies.

The Challenge is to come up with new ideas on how technologies from the Internet of Things can improve education, health care, manufacturing, energy, retail, transportation, or smart cities, or to find new solutions that can cut through many industries. Read the FAQs HERE.

First-round submissions are due May 19, 2015. Winners will be announced in July 2015.
