RALEIGH, N.C. (2/14/13)--State Employees' CU Foundation Tuesday announced the first of four planned $200,000 annual grants in support of the newly named SECU Emerging Issues Prize for Innovation through the Institute for Emerging Issues (IEI) at North Carolina State University.

The 2014 Prize for Innovation competition will help college-level students collaborate and respond to challenges facing their communities and state, in the areas of education, health, natural and built environments, and the economy. SECU Foundation's gift will allow IEI to expand on its Prize for Innovation competition, offering $50,000 in prizes to winning college teams in each issue area.

"The Prize for Innovation has been one of the most effective and engaging programs we've managed at IEI," said Anita Brown-Graham, IEI director. "With the support of SECU Foundation, we'll now be able to engage even more young people. This means more ideas, more innovation and more opportunities for a new generation to lead the way to a brighter future for our state. "

McKinley Wooten, SECU Board of Directors chairman, presented the grant at the Emerging Issues Forum on behalf of SECU members, who fund the foundation.

IEI developed the Emerging Issues Prize for Innovation in 2010. The prize engages and energizes North Carolina's young people about the role they can play in policy and economic development, and highlights the collaborative spirit, talent and initiative it takes to put ideas into action, SECU said.
