The Koch Innovation Challenge

People’s Choice

Five teams of Wichita State University students want to bring their big ideas to life. Your vote can help make it happen.

About the Innovation Challenge

Koch Industries believes in inspiring the next generation of innovators and challengers to redefine the status quo. The Koch Innovation Challenge is an annual competition, in partnership with the Wichita State University College of Engineering, established to challenge cross-disciplinary student teams to invent ways of solving unmet needs in the world or improve the quality of life for others. The competition also aims to foster a culture of creativity, innovation, entrepreneurship and teamwork among students.

This year, your vote matters, and the team that wins the People’s Choice vote will receive an extra judge’s vote in this May’s final competition. The winning team from the final competition will be named the Grand Champion and advance to the National Elevator Pitch Competition.
