Beautiful Minds Challenge

Marlboro College has launched its Beautiful Minds Challenge, with the 2014-15 prompt “Create something out of destruction. Share what you learn.”

Teens ages 14-19 are encouraged to view this year’s website and video prompt at for more information. Creative submissions will be welcomed through December 1, 2014.

In addition to cash prizes ($1000, $750, and $500), individuals and teams in the 2014-15 challenge will compete for a full-tuition scholarship to Marlboro College, which will cover eight semesters of education. All 25 finalists will be invited, expense-paid, to the annual Beautiful Minds Challenge Symposium, April 1-4, 2015.

The annual contest was designed to attract students from around the world who think broadly and creatively across disciplines. Students have submitted projects in the past from all over the United States and abroad including Hawaii, California, South Korea, and Ethiopia.
