Hi all at KBNF!
I just wanted to follow-up with you regarding the Grand Challenges. First of all, I wanted to extend a very big thank you to you all for your great ideas and efforts in the last few weeks. We placed 4th overall amongst the 60 videos regarding the votes. We obtained 100+ more votes from your effort!! It was very exciting to watch the numbers climb so quickly every day J
The video component (i.e. ability to generate awareness and disseminate results to the public) is one of the judging criteria. The rest involve the proposal: whether it is a good idea, if it is feasible and if it can have a big impact. We should find out the results in July or August and I will be sure to let you know as soon as we find out.
I have my fingers crossed!
