DukeSocial.com Wins 2nd Place & $2,500 in ChangeWorks Social Innovation Competition
DukeSocial.com, presented by juniors Ross Tucker and Julia Huang, was awarded the $2,500 second place prize. In their presentation, Tucker and Huang said Duke suffers from a fractured sense of community, and it is difficult to connect like-minded students across campus.
DukeSocial.com claims to facilitate this problem by acting as the first social media hub designed to enhance Duke student life. Its three main components—discover, share and connect—serve to link students who might not otherwise mingle with one another.
DukeSocial.com facilitates collaboration between like-minded students and aggregates resources to raise awareness about campus activity.

Changeworks Mission Statement:
ChangeWorks, Duke’s first social innovation competition, is an opportunity to see how far your Best Idea can really go. ChangeWorks is looking for the best undergraduate ideas that could spark social change, and it is up to the Duke community to select the winners. Any idea that addresses a social issue of any kind is game to enter ChangeWorks: a for-profit business venture, a non-profit service project, and everything in between.
Duke was founded on the idea of “outrageous ambitions.” It has always been a place where students use their education to address real world problems and concerns, creatively combining intelligence with ingenuity to improve the world around them. No matter what you study, what problem you’re looking to solve, whether you dream alone or collaborate with friends, ChangeWorks is a challenge to unleash your idealism of what the world can be and your determination to transform that vision into reality.
