Winners Announced

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the challenge and a massive congratulations to the winners below. This is a really special challenge for OpenIDEO and we're proud that the winning ideas and more will become part of a project deliverable that will help to move the concepts forward.

There's some nice overlap in the ideas that the IDEO team created in parallel, but perhaps the most valuable addition to the project is how the OpenIDEO community generated ideas that expanded the scope of the larger issue of low cost sanitation needs. Ideas that addressed issues like community awareness and funding help to make the team's product and service concepts more robust and realistic.
