Mask Innovation Challenge

The White House is launching a $500,000 competition to find new and effective face masks that eliminate some of the biggest annoyances that come with daily wear, such as irritated skin and fogged eyeglasses.

Through April 21, Americans can submit their ideas on how to get rid of common concerns that come with wearing masks while making sure the coverings effectively protect against COVID-19 to the “Mask Innovation Challenge.”
