The AARP Foundation, collaborating with InnoCentive, a Massachusetts organization dealing in crowdsourcing and open innovation solutions, has announced an Ideation Challenge geared towards solving the problem of food insecurity for adults aged 50 and older. Submitted ideas or programs must focus on self-sustaining and long-term solutions for reducing or preventing food insecurity for older adults that do not require sustained funding from a third party source. This challenge comes with a guaranteed award for at least one submission of no less than $1,000 and with the potential of at least $5,000, with a total payout of $10,000. Submissions are typically two written pages in length, and submitters grant “a royalty-free, perpetual, and non-exclusive license” to use any information included in the proposal to the seeker.
Submissions are due September 20 of this year (9/20/12). For more information and to register for this opportunity, please see the original announcement.
