On October 5th and 12th, CIEF will host the 12th annual BigIdea! Pitch Contest in Mammel Hall. UNO students representing colleges all across campus can partake in the two-round contest for a chance at $1000 in prizes and a trip to Tampa, FL to pitch at the national competition. The preliminary round begins on October 5th with UNO students pitching to a panel of three judges from the Greater Omaha community.
Students are given 90 seconds to pitch their idea to the panel of judges followed by up to 2 minutes of question and answer. There will be four rooms, each running its own pitch contest, with the top three students from each room advancing to the finals the following week.
There are three categories for pitches, each of which will have a fan-favorite winner:
