World CP Day is a global innovation project to change the world for people living with cerebral palsy and their families. It is designed to gather ideas from people around the world and make the best of those ideas a reality.
Do you have an idea that can change the world for someone living with CP? World CP day is a chance for you to introduce an innovative idea that can help someone living with CP, and have the possibility of it come to life!
Here is how it works:
Post an Idea: Each year, people with cerebral palsy, their families and supporters, post an idea for something that would change their world. They have just 1 minute to present the idea – in a video or text – and post it on the World CP Day website from mid-July to 31 October. To post an idea click here. You can post as many ideas as you wish.
Vote on Ideas: During October, everyone is invited to vote for the ideas that they like the best. A People’s Choice Prize of $500 is awarded to the person whose idea receives the most votes.
Shortlist: In November and December, all the ideas are reviewed by an international panel, including people with cerebral palsy and their families. Three ideas are shortlisted.
Invent It: From January to June, inventors, researchers and creators are invited to create a design or prototype for one of the 3 shortlisted ideas. They compete for a prize pool of $50,000.
Winners: The winners are announced in July and then the website opens for the next campaign.
Please note: the CP organization whose clients, staff, and supporters post the most number of ideas before 31st of October, 2014 will win a $10,000 prize. Let’s make sure we are in the running for this prize!
