What is the iOme Challenge?

The iOme (I OWE ME) Challenge works to raise awareness about the impact of financial security in retirement on the social and economic well-being of our society.

Student teams from across the country respond to the annual iOme Challenge question in the form of a 10,000-word essay and short promotional video. A blue ribbon panel judges submissions and selects the winning team. The team wins a financial award and is invited to Washington, DC to present its submission at a symposium and to discuss it with public policymakers.

2016/2017 iOme Challenge Winner Will be Announced Soon!  

The 2016/2017 iOme Challenge submissions are in and a winner will be announced later this month.  Check out the Challenge question to learn about the topic that this year’s teams addressed in their essays and videos.

The winning team will share a $5,000 prize, with an additional $1,500 paid to the team’s faculty advisor. The winning team will also be invited to Washington, DC in late June to present their winning paper at a national symposium.
