Other Challenges and Boards

Below are cities where our challenges are still in the beginning phases. Though it is never too late to join in one of our challenges, these are the best ones to join if you are a student or school in the area. If you see a challenge you would like to participate in, please see our contact page to reach out to us. Or, if you live in a city where you do not see a challenge beginning, please reach out as we will work with you to get you involved: either on our soon to be announced innovation board or by leading a new challenge in your area!
