#IFWE Challenge is a social conversation contest to stimulate the most innovative world-changing dreams. Participation is very simple: think of how you’d like to change the world and write it down in the form of a short sentence starting with the words “#IFWE”. By submitting your IFWE Dream, you will automatically enter for a chance to win prizes valued up to $12,000! The jury of experts and dreamers will carefully select the top three submissions based on the criteria of sustainability, originality and feasibility.

Participation in the “IF WE Challenge” contest is submitting a sentence which must be written in English language. The sentence written and posted by the Participant must be up to 140 character-long and begin with “#IFWE”. The Participant’s “#IFWE” sentence must express a dream, a technical challenge, or an innovative project. The proposal submitted by the Participant must be achievable and consequently cannot be based on non-existent technologies.
