Students are challenged to envision and predict then convey their thoughts about the workplace of the year 2040.

Description from the Focus 2040 website…

“It’s 2040. As you’re getting ready for work, you glance out your bedroom window and you ask yourself, “Who would have ever predicted the world to look like it does now?” The answer? You. You are the business leaders of tomorrow. You have the imagination to bring forth new ideas. You have the potential to change the world. Together, we must focus… because you are the future.”

Prizes of $5,000, $3,000 and $2,000 for the top three winners.

Corporate internships will be offered.

Additional benefits to students:

Opportunity to develop and demonstrate their abilities to think creatively, research, support their ideas and convey those ideas in writing and orally before a group
