The first round submission window is currently open and runs through October 20, 2019. One hundred finalists will be chosen to expand their ideas for round two of the competition and final winners will be announced and awarded funding for their concepts in December.
“I’m looking forward to seeing this year’s submissions,” said Schroder. “Being involved in the competition gives me a different understanding about Foxconn and the ways that the company is already helping the entire state of Wisconsin.”
