The New Arizona Prize aims to create the Arizona of tomorrow, a place where innovation thrives, where ingenuity is supported, and where the best thinking is harnessed to create long-term solutions to persistent needs.
The Arizona Community Foundation has committed to hosting philanthropic prize competitions designed to attract new thinking and innovation. Through these open, fair and transparent competitions, the Foundation can deploy a portion of its philanthropic resources to generate innovative solutions to our state’s challenges.
Our first competition, the Water Consciousness Challenge, sought the best digital strategy to raise Arizonans’ consciousness about our water future. The winning strategy is currently being deployed and lays important groundwork for our second challenge around water innovation.
