Each year the top Big Ideas teams are invited to attend the Big Ideas Grand Prize Pitch Day. Judges then select Pitch Day winners to receive an additional award, ranging from $1,000 for third place, $3,000 for second place, to $5,000 for first place. It continues to be one of the Contest’s most exciting events! This annual highlight of the Big Ideas contest is an exciting event with opportunities for audience participation and networking.

The 2019 Grand Prize Pitch was held on April 24, on the UC Berkeley campus. Seven teams (listed below) from across four universities presented their award winning innovations and their potential to improve society.
