What if innovative thinkers could win $10,000 grants to help them implement original ideas with the power to bring about real social change in Howard County?

That's the concept behind the Changemaker Challenge, a county-focused competition by the Columbia-based Horizon Foundation and the United Way of Central Maryland to spur out-of-the-box solutions to an array of pressing social issues in the county.

Maryland residents 18 and older and statewide nonprofits can submit ideas online by Sept. 8 as individuals or in teams, culminating Oct. 30 with finalists pitching their ideas before an audience.Three winners, who will also receive up to $25,000 worth of project consultation services, will be selected by a panel of judges.
