The Sandbox Challenge: Back Again And With A Theme!

Do you have innovative ideas but don’t know how to make them come to life? Well look no further. The Sandbox Challenge is made for any student who wants to make a difference in their community.

So far, many projects from past Sandbox challenges have come to life, like the Solar Eclipse Event organized by Stars and Stuff or the Living Wall. Will the Winter 2018 challenge be your chance to transform your ideas into concrete creations?

This semester, the challenge is back and is more interesting than ever. The theme for this challenge is Wellness. Do you have an idea that would make John Abbott College a more connected, enjoyable, stress free and relaxing place? If so, sign up, and from the start your team will be given 200$ to kick-off the project!

To enter the Wellness Challenge, create a team of minimum three students. Your team must represent at least two different programs. It’s as simple as that!

Skill builders and mentors will help you to develop your idea and guide you towards your goal, so a to ensure you are well prepared for the Pitch event at which you will present your project to a panel of John Abbott judges in order to have a chance to win more money!
