The challenge areas this year are:
Products and services that will improve nonprofit service delivery and/or the lives of vulnerable popluations in Southwestern PA.

Healthy Food Access
Products and services that will increase access to healthy and nutritional choices for vulnerable and underserved populations.

This past fall, more than 175 teams submitted solutions to the UpPrize Social Innovation to improving the lives of vulnerable populations in Southwestern PA. In December, we slimmed down to 19 semi-finalists, and now, just 10 finalists remain contenders for awards of up to $300,000.

Organized by The Forbes Funds, the challenge areas are generously underwritten by the BNY Mellon Foundation of Southwestern Pennsylvania and Bridgeway Capital. Concast Business, UPMC Health Plan and NEXTpittsburgh are our amazing supporting partners.
