The Winners of the 2021 Iovine and Young Prize

In honor of the Academy’s entrepreneurial founders Jimmy Iovine and Andre Young, the Iovine and Young Development Prize Competition awards funding prizes to an Academy student or team. Every year, students pitch proposals for innovative products that have the potential to improve society or revolutionize an industry. Due to the pandemic, this year’s competitors went virtual, using creative ways to impress the judges through Zoom. The judging committee, which includes Academy faculty and special industry guests, determined the winners based on project potential, feasibility for practical application, and social impact. 

This year’s winners are...
