2023 Changemaker Challenge | T-Mobile
The T–Mobile Foundation and Ashoka are launching the fifth Changemaker Challenge, a nationwide contest that gives young leaders an opportunity to take their innovative ideas for creating a more inclusive, equitable and sustainable future to the next level. Since the first Changemaker Challenge in 2018, over 1,500 applications have been submitted with projects focusing on everything from therapy kits and digital apps to support children on the autism spectrum to repurposing tobacco to create biodegradable food packaging.
Leaders between ages 13 and 18 who are passionate about digital empowerment, equity, and protecting our planet are invited to apply until May 18th. Successful applicants will receive seed funding to help their projects take off, as well as an all-expenses-paid trip to T-Mobile headquarters in Bellevue, Wash. for the Changemaker Lab experience. T-Mobile and the T-Mobile Foundation have invested more than $2.5 million in the program and distributed $414,000 in prize seed funding to teams making an impact in their communities.
