2017 Innovation Competition
Transcend Madison Competition on April 4th and 5th at the Discovery Building!
Transcend Madison, created by Transcend UW, is the campus's first-ever student-led innovation competition. Each year we give away $55,000 worth of prizes. This event was made with one goal in mind: to bring students all across UW Madison together to demonstrate their novel ideas and creations.
This is a competition for the doers. We judge heavily on execution: taking the necessary steps to turn your idea from nothing into reality.
