Whiteman Air Force Base provides an important advantage to the fight. To stay ahead and ready for tomorrow’s challenges, we rely on your ideas and creativity. Innovation is the Warfighter's Edge.
Enlisted, officer and government employees may now submit their innovative ideas for the 2019 Whiteman AFB Spark Tank Competition.
The competition calls for Airmen to pitch their innovative ideas to senior leaders via www.whiteman.af.mil/Edge/, and will culminate in a showcase of those ideas in the Summer of 2019.
Innovation: Easy as 1...2...3!
1. Use the submission form below. Submissions must include a brief summary with the names of each team member. All ideas are eligible: Do you have an idea for new technological improvements – or a simply improvement to day-to-day activities around base? This is your chance to be heard and no idea is too small.
First round submissions are due to the command by Feb. 22, 2019.
2. Make your pitch! A multi-functional panel of expert mentors from a variety of Air Force Specialties will review submissions immediately and will help Airmen to hone in on their idea and implementation options. Selected finalists will then receive the opportunity to pitch senior base leaders their ideas and will compete for approval and funding toward implementation of their projects.
3. Make a difference: Once approved and funded, ideas will be assigned an implementation team and timeline. Even small changes can have a big impact!
Be the Warfighter's Edge.
