Prizes and Awards

This year’s competition features up to $5,000 in prizes and awards. The Roo Idea Jump Competition is graciously supported by the Regnier Family Foundations and the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation.

  • $250: Finalists Award – Each of the four finalist teams will receive $250
  • $500: People’s Choice Award – The audience will vote for the best idea. The award will be distributed proportional to the number of votes each idea receives.
  • $1,500: Judges Award – Each of the three judges will have $500 they can award however they would like. This means each judge could choose to award it all to one team or divide it evenly amongst all teams, or anywhere in between.
