Wege Prize Circular Design Solution accepting applications! (10/31)

The Wege Prize, an annual student competition focused on the circular economy, formed out of Kendall College of Art and Design of Ferris State University in Michigan, is currently accepting applications!

Some highlights are as follows:

  • Open to all full-time college/university students around the world at all degree levels, no matter their citizenship status.
  • Students form teams of 5 and apply with a research plan that identifies a wicked problem and proposes a circular design solution, with the intent to work on refining their project/product throughout the program.
  • All student teams that apply will receive application feedback. Those who are accepted will have their ideas reviewed by our panel of core judges: seasoned professionals in the fields of design, the circular economy, sustainable business, and more.
  • Finalist teams present to a live audience in May (travel is reimbursed) and compete for a portion of a $65k cash prize pool.

The application is now open and has a deadline of October 31. You can find more information at www.wegeprize.org/apply.
