We finally have the winning ideas for the Obama Challenge. After 50 days posting, voting and commenting on ideas for the president of the United States, Barack Obama, here are the winners in the three categories:
Best idea with most positive votes: Prize 1000$
1. Adriancastineiras and his idea (21018) ONE MOVIE, ONE ACTION with a total of 543 positive votes. In his idea, he invites president Obama to “pass a law whereby every American movie shot in a second or third-world country would have to donate 1% of its budget towards social or humanitarian aid in said country. It would have to be a concrete project, approved before the start of shooting, by a commission appointed for this purpose. Shooting in a given country would thus ensure a direct positive impact on the community welcoming the production.”
2. El último Xel’Naga with the idea (15040) INTELLIGENT PATENTS with 507 positive votes,
which proposes that “patents be free of charge or that their cost be reduced to a symbolic fee, accessible to all. Their current cost discriminates against the creative potential of people without monetary resources.”
Best idea including a Video: Prize 500$
1. Adriancastineiras and his idea (21018) ONE MOVIE, ONE ACTION with a total of 543 positive votes. Winner of this category too, thanks to the video made by the ideator and his friends.
2. Spirit with the idea and video (20014) Impact campaign in schools to create a real rejection of drugs amongst young people with a total of 62 positive votes. This idea suggests that “at the young age of 8-10 years, somewhat harsh (within certain limits, of course) campaigns be implemented federally, in order to create a total rejection of drugs amongst children”.
