From July 15 to November 15, 2022, 3M Inspire Challenge 2022 is on the hunt for the most innovative ideas to create a more positive world and add value to 3M’s business and customers.

Participants can choose to propose solutions for one of the three themes: (1) Sustainable Materials, (2) The New Paradigm (a pandemic aware world), and (3) Equity (through science and technology).

The challenge welcomes entries from students regardless of courses of study in Australia and New Zealand, India, Korea, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam.

The 3M Inspire Challenge will take place across two stages. The first stage, known as the Country-Level Semi-Finals, will see students face-off against their local peers in a live judging panel on October 26-27, 2022. The winners of this stage will be crowned the title of “Country Champion”, awarded a cash prize of USD$2,000, and internships at local 3M offices.

The Country Champion will then proceed to the second stage, known as the Regional-Level Finals, to compete against all the Country Champions. The winning team will be crowned “Regional Champions” and walk away with a USD$5,000 cash prize.

Throughout the challenge, participants will also enjoy access to 3M mentors from diverse backgrounds who will sharpen their ideas in preparation for the Country-Level Semi-Finals and Regional-Level Finals.
