I was wondering if any of you out there were planning to compete in the Innovation Challenge. It's an idea competition where you solve actual problems presented by the sponsor companies - you don't have to write a business plan or do cases or anything like that. There's a $20k first prize, and if you make the finals you get to come to Darden and visit me.
Also, the entire contest wraps during the fall, so it will be something you can add to your resume before interviewing in January; a little more distinctive than "member of XYZ club" etc.
