I found out today that there were over 1000 entries to this contest. I think they will be distributing twenty, $200,000 prizes. That's about 1 in 50 applicants. They published a map showing the number of applications from each country. Ours is one of the 38 from Honduras.
Obviously, we really hope to get one of these prizes/grants. It would enable us to operate for over a year, and get our technologies and methodologies ironed out.
