The judging committee will include well-known leaders in the field of Social Innovation, including Eli Malinsky from NYC's Centre for Social Innovation, New School alum Sabine Blaizin from AmeriCorps, Fred Dust, partner at IDEO, Aaron Hurst, president and founder of Taproot foundation; and Emily Lutzker, founder of Open Invo.
