Thanks to Alaska Airlines we are again offering an early-bird incentive. Submit your idea by Friday, September 5th, 11:59 pm (AKST) and be entered to win an Alaska Airlines ticket. The lucky winner will be randomly selected and announced the following Monday (Sept. 8th). This is separate from the final competition. One entry per person, although multiple ideas accepted.
The AIC team has been hard at work preparing for the 2014 competition. We’ve been attending multiple community events and will continue to do so. The AIC booth at Young Pioneers Day was a huge success.
The 2014 Arctic Innovation Competition now has three divisions: AIC Main (ages 13+), AIC JR (ages 13-17), and AIC Cub (ages 12 and under). The new cub division rewards innovation and creative thinking in younger students. The cub division will have its own judges for the final competition and the judging rubric will be targeted for a younger age group.
Prize allocation for the AIC Cub division is:
1st place - $500 2nd place - $300 3rd place - $200 Three honorable mentions - $25
