#NYUSilverUp4TheChallenge is a student competition grounded in the principles of the Grand Challenges for Social Work that was launched at NYU Silver School of Social Work in August 2018. Fourteen concepts were submitted, reflecting the unique and powerful ways that social workers are positioned to address the Grand Challenges. Topics range from the development of non-profit and programming seeking to eradicate social isolation, to examining food insecurity and instability in a changing environment. Six finalists have been selected to present their concepts at a culminating event on April 2, 2019, after which a grand winner will be named a GCSW Scholar and will receive a monetary award.
