Congratulations to Matt Miclette, Memphis Madden, Sarah Parkinson and Anne Futterrer, Master's Candidates at the School of Social Policy & Practice, who have won the 2017 Penn Public Policy Challenge! The Challenge, sponsored by the Fels Institute of Government, is a real-world competition in which policy-minded students formulate ideas to improve the City of Philadelphia. Each competing team defines a specific problem in the city, identifies key stakeholders, and develops policy proposals and campaign plans to achieve significant positive change in their community. 

The SP2 team won with a proposal that provides a way to dispose of unused prescription pain medication in drop boxes at pharmacies. Read full coverage of the Penn Public Policy Challenge here.
