2. Design Sprint Contest


The UGA Social Incubator and Project EITC are hosting a Design Sprint Contest this spring. You can create a team of 2-4 to compete to win up to $5,000 in cash prizes.

We are looking for motivated minds to design new approaches to encouraging Athens-Clarke County families to claim their Earned Income Tax Credit. Every year roughly $5 to $15 million dollars goes unclaimed. Your task is to design an innovative approach to getting this money into the hands of families who deserve and need it.

Teams will present their proposal to a panel of judges. Ultimately, the winning team’s outreach proposal will be implemented in Athens-Clarke County.
