The Maternal and Child Health Bureau invited participation in four prize-awarded Challenges with a total prize purse of $1.5 million. The Challenge: Develop innovative, technology-based solutions to improve the health of mothers and children across the U.S. We have announced winners in Phase 1 and Phase 2. Now, Phase 2 winners are testing their projects on a larger scale in hopes of winning the Phase 3 Grand Prize.
