On Oct 29th, the Selection Committee will select the finalist for the Zahn Challenge.
Our goal is to select 3 finalists from each category (Water Project, Water Enterprise,
Enterprise with Prototype, Enterprise without prototype and Project) however we received very few water
applications. We are in the process of determining how best to address this situation and we will advise the applicants who submitted
an application to the Water Track as soon as we have made a decision.
To be clear, water applications will be considered . We are just figuring out the best way to handle the water applications.

The finalist will be notified on Oct 30th.
The finalist will present to a panel of judges on Nov 7th from 1:30-4:00 PM on SDSU campus.
The winners of the Zahn Challenge for 2013 will be announced at a reception hosted by President Hirshman
in the SDSU Alumni Center. The reception will run from 5:00-6:30 PM on Nov 7th.

What will a finalist need to do?
You will be given 8 minutes to present followed by 8 minutes of Q&A.
The format for the presentation will be provided to the finalist
on Oct 30th. The content of the presentation will match the application. The only additional information
asked will be related to team projected milestones for 2014. Each of the finalist will be given the opportunity to
practice their presentation and get feedback prior to Nov 7th.

Every team is invited!
