Winners - Ideas Happen 2003

$25,000 can go a long way towards bringing an idea to life.

12 inspired winners took home $25,000 each in the 2003 Ideas Happen contest. Thousands of participants, aged 18-29, pitched their ideas in three categories: Entrepreneur, Community, and Self-Expression. Our audience voted for their favorites, and the top four ideas in each category were awarded the funds to help get their ideas off the ground.

Our winners impressed us with their tremendous creativity. The diversity of their entries allowed for a range of exciting possibilities, from aiding the underprivileged, to stimulating artistic expression, to increasing the efficiency of everyday tasks.
