Changemakers Competition

The Nudge blog directed me to a competition that invites people to send in suggestions for using behavioural economics ideas to design better healthcare policies. The RWJ Foundation introduces the scheme "It is our hope that the projects entered in the “Designing for Better Health” competition demonstrate novel and effective approaches that make it easier for people to make choices and change their behavior to improve their health."

"Eligibility Criteria

The competition is open to all types of organizations (charitable organizations, private companies, or public entities) from all countries. We consider all entries that:

• Reflect the theme of the competition: Designing for Better Health. Entries will demonstrate innovative solutions around financial transactions for social change.

• Indicate growth beyond the stage of idea, concept, or research. At a minimum, entries should be at the demonstration stage and indicate success. While we support new ideas at every stage and encourage their entry, the judges are only able to evaluate programs that are beyond the conceptual stage, and have demonstrated a proof of impact, even at small scale.

• Are submitted in English, Spanish or Portuguese."
