    If you need help with finding teammates, contact us to join a wechat group where we connect you to like-minded students around the country.

    Step 2

    Pick a theme for

    your social innovation project

    Follow the guideline to pick a theme.

    Step 3

    Fill in the registration form

    And pay for the registration fee (900 RMB / person). Please note that if you become a finalist, you also have to pay for meals and accommodations which are not covered by the registration fee.

     

    The registration fee is not refundable.

     

    If you add new members to the team at any time during the competition, the new members should pay the registration fee. If a member drops out, the registration fee is not refundable. If you wish to replace a team member, the new member does not need to pay the registration fee again.

    supporting resources
