The Wilbur-Ellis Innovation Award is a great opportunity for college and university students (graduate or undergraduate) to share their ideas for feeding a growing world population.

In its first year, the Innovation Award is open to student teams from U.S. colleges/universities. The team that submits the best proposal for feeding a growing world population will receive a $25,000 top prize. Honorable mention awards of $5,000 may also be given to up to four teams.

  • Registration only takes a minute – and student teams that register by Tuesday, March 1, 2022, will have 10 points added to their scores!
  • The deadline for submitting proposals is Monday, May 2, 2022.

On the Innovation Award web page, there’s a brief video from Wilbur-Ellis CEO John Buckley explaining why Wilbur-Ellis is sponsoring the Innovation Award, along with an FAQ and other information.
