  • Team Name and Description (can change over the course of the competition!)
  • Team Members (you can add as you go!)
  • Team's Purpose (250 words)
  • Initial Idea (optional)
  • Current Activities (200 words)
  • Goals (200 words).

Finding Teammates

We understand that it can be difficult to find a team on your own. We encourage you to take advantage of the following resources to help connect you with like-minded people with diverse backgrounds and complementary skill sets to work with over the course of the 5-month program—and perhaps, beyond. 

Whether you have an initial idea for solving a public health or education challenge, have a public health or education challenge that they are looking to solve, or are just looking for something cool to join... navigate to our Team Building Forums to meet other interested participants!

Check out our "Teams" page for more information.

Once your team is assembled, be sure you meet the eligibility requirements
