ABOUT THE NEW ARIZONA PRIZE
The New Arizona Prize
, a philanthropic prize competition aimed at attracting new and innovative thinking to solve some of Arizona’s most pressing problems, was launched in 2014 by the Arizona Community Foundation, in partnership with Republic Media and ASU’s Morrison Institute for Public Policy.
The first challenge was the Water Consciousness Challenge, awarded last year to Beyond the Mirage, a team of videographers and marketers from the University of Arizona and Arizona Public Media.
