Students will work with New School faculty; industry experts in healthcare systems, information technology, data visualization, and ethnography; and global firms Cognizant Digital Works, ReD Associates, and Idea Couture.

Cash prizes of $6,000, $3,000, and $2,000 will be awarded to the first, second, and third place-winning teams, respectively. Food and drinks will be provided.
