Transformational ideas can come from anywhere. From anyone. National Geographic’s CHASING GENIUS has been soliciting ideas around three issues: sustainable planet, global health, and feeding nine billion. Now the finalists have been chosen, and four of them will win $25,000 each. Check out the video submissions and vote for your favorite by September 15.
If the latest headlines have you looking for a bit of hopeful news, be sure visit this page. That's where you'll find the newly revealed finalists at National Geographic's CHASING GENIUS, a digital community focused on ideas for changing the world.

The challenge attracted thousands of bright, innovative visions, which the judges have now narrowed down to the best of the best. Four of them will win $25,000 each, and one of those, the People's Choice, will be determined by audience votes.

Among the finalists, there are solutions for cleaner water, smarter food production, and preventing diseases. In scope, the concepts range from connecting whole communities to reinventing items small enough to put in our pockets.
