The Aiken Challenge is a program supported by the University of Vermont George D. Aiken Lectures that aims to involve students younger than college age in energy, foreign affairs, agriculture and the environment – topics that long occupied the attention of George D. Aiken, a former U.S. senator and governor of Vermont. In past years the Aiken Challenge has promoted innovation by engaging Vermont schools by challenging student teams to complete important projects such as developing an idea or proposing a solution “that will influence the greatest change in your community” to reduce dependency on foreign oil and address global warming issues. Prizes for the best ideas and solutions are awarded to the teams who develop them. A new Aiken Challenge will be promoted soon!
