DURHAM, N.H. (AP) - A competition that challenges participants to develop solutions to some of society’s most pressing social and environmental problems is wrapping up at the University of New Hampshire.

Finalists in the New Hampshire Social Venture Innovation Challenge will present their projects at the Durham campus on Monday. They’ll also hear from Eric Schwarz, founder of Citizen Schools, which provides hands-on apprenticeships to students in low-income communities. He is being honored as the “innovator of the year” by the university’s Carsey School of Public Policy.

The competition features a student track and a community track. The top student-led project will win $5,000 cash, while the top community project will get $10,000.
