The first event was a gathering of Utah high school students representing 4 different schools.  Students presented proposed solutions to some of the world’s pressing problems in competition format similar to a debate meet.  The Solutionaries Congress format is one that David the IHE team are considering expanding nationally. We are excited to see how it evolves.
