Develop new solutions to deliver education

BTV Ignite is participating in this year's US Ignite series of "Reverse Pitch" Competitions.   Digital solution developers are invited to compete for $30,000 in cash grants to demonstrate innovative ways high-bandwidth ideas can help deliver education - in Burlington, across our state, and by linking our students with national communities and resources.



The call for "Idea Proposals" is now open.   We are seeking your Idea/Concept proposal(s) for new digital solutions supporting education delivery.   The best ideas will be considered for an "Idea Grant" of $2,000 to help you take your idea to a proof of concept solution (for consideration at the Finals event in October).  

The deadline for proposal submission is 5:00PM EDT on Friday, June 29, 2018.  

To submit a proposal, you must complete and upload the Proposal using this "Idea Pitch Template" document.  

The template should be uploaded using this online form


You may optionally also upload or share a link to a short video pitch of your idea, in addition to a completed Proposal document, using the online form above.  

More information on Proposal guidelines and selection criteria are available in this Idea Pitch Template document at the above link.  

If you have any questions or problems completing or submitting your Proposal, don't hesitate to reach out to
