Our expert panels will select eight finalists from among the applications to present their innovative ideas to a five-person panel of judges comprised of one Arthritis Society representative and four VIP representatives.

The top three projects selected by the panel at our Arthritis Ideation DenTM event will each receive a $50,000 prize. A People’s Choice Award of $50,000 will also be selected from among the remaining finalists.
