"Nat Geo’s CHASING GENIUS  is a new initiative built on the premise that transformational ideas can come from anywhere and anyone. We are currently soliciting ideas—big and small—around three critical issues: sustainable planet, global health, and feeding 9 billion. We will provide $25,000 to each of four winners to develop their ideas further.


I hope you and your colleagues at the Feed the Future Partnering for Innovation Program will consider joining the CHASING GENIUS Challenge and will help us spread the word. Submissions close July 31st. For more information, go to www.natgeochasinggenius.com."
