Chasing Genius: National Geographic is Looking for the Best World-Changing Idea

Chasing Genius Contest Will Award $25,000 to Idea That Gets the Most Votes

David Royse | LedeTree

You see a Facebook post that tugs at your heart a little and, as you read about some problem, you want to donate to a cause that is working on that problem. You could try to Google and see if you can find an organization doing work on that problem, then either hope, or do more detective work to see if it’s reputable.

But you don’t have much time right now. Maybe later. You probably never donate.

If only there were just a donate button on that Facebook post.

Enter PocketChange.

Your change could help make change.

Good idea?

How about using drones with thermal based sensors to detect land mines?

Good idea?

Those are two of the ten good ideas you could vote for in the National Geographic Chasing Genius Challenge, which aims to provide $25,000 for the best world-changing tech idea.

Who decides the winner?

You. It’s crowd-sourced.

Here’s a link to the 10 finalist ideas.

You can vote through March 20.
