While this post is not directly related to IT or IT-related issues, I know many of you have children that are in college or universities, which makes it VERY relevant. (My kids are busy with elementary school science projects but will ready for this in just a few years :)).
Dell just launched the Dell Social Innovation Competition site, a place where university students from around the globe can make a difference in the world by putting great ideas into action. The winner of the competition will be awarded $50,000 to start a business and put their idea into action.
Note that the deadline for entry is Feb. 20, 2009, just a few weeks away.
Go take a look at Direct2Dell for more details and short vlog describing the competition.
