Are you in college or graduate school?  Do you have an unusual idea that could change the world?  Send us your switchpoint and you could win a chance to present your idea on stage at SwitchPoint2014, an unusual gathering of international experts, entrepreneurs, and innovators.  It doesn’t matter if you study global health, business, science, or the arts.  If you think across boundaries and have a habit of seeing unusual uses for everyday things—and you want to make the world a better, healthier place—SwitchPoint wants you!  And new this year, the SwitchPoint Student Contest will accept artistic submissions.  Send us your music, your photography, your set designs, your videos, your infographics—the possibilities are endless.

Interested or know someone who might be?  To enter, by 3/15 send to switchpoint@intrahealth.org an essay of up to 350 words or a video no longer than 90 seconds describing or demonstrating your switchpoint and how it could make a difference.  Share ideas and start discussions with #SwitchPoint on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram, and win!
