Students in groups of one to four members are invited to submit a 3
minute or less video explaining the problem, innovative solution and
the solution’s feasibility, sustainability and potential for
expansion. Students may seek the help of mentors to advise and
encourage discussion about entrepreneurship, user centered design, and
ethics as it relates to the issue.
The competition is sponsored by the Pennsylvania State University’s
Humanitarian Engineering and Social Entrepreneurship program.
Inspired by the eponymous documentary produced and originated by
Jeannie Magill, to milk a rhino is to leverage natural resources as
the Masaai and Himba tribe did to empower their own community.
A panel of reviewers will choose the top videos as finalists based on the criteria (detailed on the Web site). At the showcase on November 16th 2011, a panel of five referees with expertise in Africa, innovation, technology, entrepreneurship, tourism, conservation & sustainability, and film & media will rate the pitches.
