The expert judges apparently have selected 15 finalists for the Cure Challenge but who they selected is a mystery.



Where can you see them and vote?  What does the vote mean with respect to making a presentation on March 7th?

I have been watching the count down every day right down to the minute and seconds.



Really glad to see how passionate everyone is with their ideas. We all are helping the world be a better place.



Best wishes to all of the competitors!

I have 110 supporters for my solutions "Health Helpmate"

Meanwhile all the other proposals have 1-5. Now we have to get votes and I don't know if the supporters count or not.



It seems redundant trying to get votes when I already gathered so much support for my proposal. 

Now essentially I'll have to ask the same people to vote for me again.

 You are right. This is a bit confusing. I emailed to ask if the invitation meant sponsorship to come to the UN but didn't get a response. Hopefully someone from the admin can respond here.

Based on the criteria for this challenge on chronic diseases our submission on stopping tooth decay should have been a slam dunk.  For some reason it was not one of the 15 selected out of 98.  From what I can see, ours is the only one that promises to control the disease and relieve the pain in the untreated tooth decay of over 3 billion people, the number one chronic disease in children.  Perhaps it was because our solution didn't require a computer?  If so, I don't remember seeing that this was a requirement.  



At the very least, the Solve CoLab administrators should send each submission the scoring of the judges without their names attached.  The process was fine until it appears the criteria weren't applied.

Sorry Martin I don't agree with you. 



There are numerous proposals which tackle the question and seem viable for preventing, detecting and treating chronic diseases. I think you're just a little disheartened. You can't honestly think yours was the only and the best solution from a 100 so proposals. There were many great ideas. Some even better than both of ours. 



Judging was based on four factors and I believe the judges acted fairly to all. 



I was just mentioning an issue with administration and lack of clarity by the organizers about finalist selection and the UN pitch. 



You should read the other shortlisted proposals with an open mind and unbiased outlook. Perhaps you will change your opinion about potential unfairness then.
