Kendall College Wege Prize Applications Being Accepted

You want to do work they’re passionate about. Here’s an opportunity that speaks to the desire to rethink the way we produce and consume, to redesign the way economies work, and to build a better future. The Wege Prize is a global design competition that enables students to collaborate with others around the world and develop products, services, business models, or other solutions that can help us create a circular economy.
In addition to competing for $30,000 USD in total cash prizes to help move your ideas forward, students will expand their perspective and their professional network, hone their creative problem-solving skills, and learn directly from experts in the circular economy, sustainable development, design thinking, materials science, user experience design, biomimicry, and more.
Beginning August 26, Kendall College of Art and Design will be accepting accept team applications for Wege Prize 2020. Visit for more information.
