DSUSD Goldfish Bowl

DSUSD Goldfish Bowl

The DSUSD Goldfish Bowl affords students and staff the opportunity to pitch their innovative ideas for education to local business people and entrepreneurs. All applications are screened using stated evaluation criteria by members of cabinet. Five teams advance to The BOWL. There are two official BOWLS per academic year; one in the fall and one in the spring. Funding amounts, not to exceed $4,000.00 per project, will vary as awarded by the judges (AKA the sharks).

Innovation-Defined as something that is both new (either invention or iteration) and better. How is your project innovative? How could your project significantly improve education? How does your project solve an important issue?
