MIT IDEAS Innovation Showcase + Awards 2020

Sunday, April 26, 2020 at 12:30pm to 3:30pm

Virtual Event

Join the MIT IDEAS Social Innovation Challenge on Sunday, April 26th, for a virtual celebration of the spirit of innovation, entrepreneurship, and public service! While this annual event has been held on MIT's campus for the past 18 years, we have virtualized our showcase and awards this year as a response to COVID-19. We're excited to share the work of our teams with a broader community than ever!

As a part of going virtual, we invite you to be a part of the award process:

  • Vote for your favorite team! Check out videos from our 20 finalist teams here and vote for your favorite now through April 26th at 1:00 pm Eastern Time. The two teams with the most votes will each receive "Crowd Favorite" grants of $2,500 to continue their innovative work!

  • Register to join the livestream of the IDEAS Award Ceremony on Sunday, April 26 at 3 pm Eastern Time to celebrate the work of our inspiring student social innovators and entrepreneurs, and to hear which teams will be awarded up to $21,000 to advance their efforts.

This is where ideas make positive impacts. Thanks for joining us in making those impacts happen!
