All UNK students and Kearney community members are welcome to enter their BIG ideas in the 10th annual Big Idea Kearney competition. To enter your idea, submit a two-minute video pitch by October 11, 2021 at 11:59 pm. A group of judges will view all of the submitted videos and will select the top 10 who will then be part of a LIVE event that will be held in downtown Kearney at NEST:Space on November 3, 2021. The top 10 UNK students and top 10 community members will pitch their ideas live to a panel of judges. The live event will be open for the public to attend, and the top three winners will be selected by popular vote. Top prizes are awarded in each category: 1st place receives $1,000, 2nd place receives $500 and 3rd place receives $250!
