VOTE FOR YOUR FAVORITE NEXT-GEN MASK CHALLENGE SEMIFINALIST

Get your vote in for the coolest mask design and help choose who will go on to become one of the Top 5 Finalist Teams in the $1M Next-Gen Mask Challenge. All you have to do is pick your favorite mask.

These masks of the future were designed by young innovators from around the world ages 15-24 who are on a mission to prevent the spread of COVID-19 with a mask that’s comfortable, stylish, and functional - overcoming all the top barriers to mask wearing. The design images you see here inspired prototypes to be created in collaboration with our manufacturing partners 3M, Honeywell, and Lydall - which will be showcased at our finals event in December.
