*This event is by invitation only.
For the third year, the Aspen Challenge will kick off in Los Angeles with a forum for students and teachers from partner high schools. At the forum, leaders pioneering change to some of the world’s most pressing issues present challenges to the teams. Following the forum, teams will have seven weeks to design a solution to their selected challenge. They will reconvene to present their solutions on stage in a daylong competition, and one team will be selected to advance and showcase their work at the Aspen Ideas Festival.
