DURHAM, N.H. (AP) - The University of New Hampshire has announced the winners of this year’s Social Venture Innovation Challenge.

The competition asks participants to develop solutions to pressing social and environmental problems.

The student winners are a pair from UNH who proposed a mobile grocery store to help address the issue of “food deserts.” Bradley and Shannon Calabro, master’s students in business and social work, respectively, received a cash prize of $5,000.

The community winner is Andrew Jaccoma for his Sensible Spreader Technologies, an effort to increase road safety, reduce waste of de-icing agents and lessen impact on the environment by using the latest technology on road maintenance equipment. Jaccoma, of Portsmouth, received $10,000.

The prizes in the community track were partly made possible by the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation.
