Winners Announced

We’re thrilled to announce the Winning Concepts for our Bone Marrow Donation Challenge! Congratulations to our Top 10 and thank you to the entire Community for your incredible work.

With 25 amazing Final Concepts to choose from, the Evaluation phase was packed with your insightful feedback – clearly you took your evaluative duties very seriously! After reading through all of your ratings and comments, the OpenIDEO, Haas Center and 100K Cheeks team had our work cut out for us. But we couldn’t be happier with this set of winning ideas.

And stay tuned: in the next few weeks we’ll be launching a new challenge phase called Realisation, which will enable the students of 100K Cheeks to share their implementation progress with the entire OpenIDEO community.

In the meantime, check out our 10 Winning Concepts below. Who knows – you might even be inspired to try one of them out in your own community!

Dentists could register their patients to become bone marrow donors during appointments. Many people may fear sitting in the dentist's chair, but they could feel better if they felt they were helping others.
