Entries due October 29, 2022

Download Details

COB launched this challenge series to help students develop and exhibit their talents in innovation. For this fourth and final open-call opportunity this semester, think about current UCAers and alumni. Think Homecoming 2022 – the pageantry, the festivities, the memories. Current and former students can find something meaningful during Homecoming.

WHO: Any UCA student is welcome to enter this challenge whether you attend UCA online or in person.
WHAT: Imagine Lab Innovation Challenge 4: The Homecoming Challenge
WHEN: 
Video submissions are due by 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, October 29, 2022.
WHY: (1) Prizes. (2) Entry into Tournament of Champions. (3) Bragging rights on your resume.

For Homecoming this week, students are invited to participate in an either/or challenge. Either
(a) design an “official” sticker to be placed on water bottles, personal tech devices, car windows, etc. or
(b) make a music video using the UCA Fight Song as the music and lyrics.

Students from any major or college at any level — both face-to-face and online — can participate in the Innovation Challenge Series.  The deadline is Saturday, October 29, 2022, at midnight to exercise their opportunity-seeking and problem-solving skills.

Using tools found in the Imagine Lab (3rd Floor of UCA’s College of Business), make Homecoming memorable in this core challenge. Then, make a video of yourself highlighting the features of your approach. Upload that video to YouTube and share a link via this form. Please know that the video can be as long as you want, but only the first two (2) minutes will be viewed for prize consideration. Prizes are gift cards valued at $100 for the best approach, $50 for second, and $25 for third. Email for questions or details.

All UCA Students Welcome to Participate in TLC Box Challenge

Innovation Challenge Series at UCA
Challenge 3: Due October 16, 2022
The TLC Box Challenge | Download the Details

Students from any major or college at any level can participate in the Innovation Challenge Series.  The deadline is Sunday, October 16, 2022, at midnight. For this 3rd challenge, think inside the box to brighten someone’s day – and not just any someone. Brighten an Arkansas Children’s Hospital patient’s day. Provide some TLC or Tender Loving Care in a box to a child. Hospitalized children and their families can experience long, and sometimes painful, lonely days. This is not only true in hospitals but also in venues like Ronald McDonald Houses. Unboxing joy, and delivering smiles or laughter, are welcome distractions on most days.

Using tools found in the Imagine Lab (3rd Floor of UCA’s College of Business), help a child unbox some joy in this core challenge. Then, make a video of yourself highlighting the features of your approach. Upload that video to YouTube and share a link via this form. Please know that the video can be as long as you want, but only the first two (2) minutes will be viewed for prize consideration. Prizes are gift cards valued at $100 for the best approach, $50 for second, and $25 for third. Email for questions or details. 

Be sure to request access to the Imagine Lab via the Department of Marketing & Management: mktgmgmt@uca.edu.

Innovation Challenge 2: Due October 2, 2022

Feedback from all types of industries continues to speak to the desire for more creative, innovative, and problem-solving talent. COB has launched this challenge series to help students develop and exhibit their talents in innovation. Get ready to compete!

WHO: Any UCA student is welcome to enter this challenge whether you attend UCA online or in person.
WHAT: Imagine Lab Innovation Challenge 2: The Celebration Challenge
WHEN: 
Video submissions are due by 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, October 2, 2022.
WHY: (1) Prizes. (2) Entry into Tournament of Champions. (3) Bragging rights on your resume.


For challenge 2, select a day in September and tell us how to celebrate it in a big way. Is it a gift-giving occasion? Are specific foods available? At a minimum, bring people together for a celebratory event with this challenge.

One option is to select an existing September day that you believe deserves more festivities (see NationalToday.com listings). Labor Day is one such day that is perhaps not celebrated to the magnitude of October’s Halloween. Another option is to create your own “day.” Either way, make it as grand as your favorite holiday. 

Using tools found in the Imagine Lab (3rd Floor of UCA’s College of Business), design a big-time celebration that brings people together. Then, make a video of yourself highlighting all the specifics. Upload that video to YouTube and share a link via this form. Please know that the video can be as long as you want, but only the first two (2) minutes will be viewed for prize consideration.

Prizes are gift cards valued at $100 for the best big day, $50 for second, and $25 for third. First prize gains entry into the Tournament of Champions set for November 16.

For on-campus students, the Imagine Lab has simple innovation tools available for use.  If students need Imagine Lab access or access to COB over the weekend, they can email mktgmgmt@uca.edu for more information.  For online students, accessing the Imagine Lab is not a requirement to participate.

Want to know more about the first challenge? Check out the competition.

Innovation Challenge Series at UCA: First Challenge Released!

A new and exciting innovation challenge series is launching in the COB Imagine Lab! The first challenge deadline is September 16, 2022: The Suitcase Challenge. Prizes will be awarded for the best ideas.

For this challenge design a suitcase that accommodates clean clothes at the beginning of a trip and dirty clothes during and at the end of a trip. Said differently, design a suitcase for a whole trip, not just the start of a trip. Suitcases are in need of an upgrade. Some of the features like wheels, handles, and expandability are great, but a core challenge remains: mixing clean and dirty clothes at the travel destination.

Using tools found in the Imagine Lab (3rd Floor of UCA’s College of Business) design a suitcase that overcomes this core challenge. Then, make a video of yourself highlighting the features of your upgraded design. Upload that video to YouTube and share a link via this form. Please know that the video can be as long as you want, but only the first two (2) minutes will be viewed for prize consideration. Prizes are $100 for the best-upgraded design, $50 for second place, and $25 for third place.

Stay tuned. The first challenge is for students, but we will be engaging other friends on and off campus this semester. Get ready to compete! Teams are welcome. Email for questions or details.
