Looking for a nice payday? The State of Michigan needs your help.
Oh yeah, and you could win $1 million!
The state is looking for any and all solutions to keep Asian carp out of the Great Lakes. The invasive species could do significant damage to Michigan’s tourism economy, which is greatly focused on the outdoors, not to mention, the Great Lakes region has a $7 billion fishing industry.
The state has set aside $1 million to develop a global contest. It’s called the Michigan Invasive Carp Challenge, and the Michigan DNR is welcoming all possible solutions.
“I think in the fight against Asian carp, there aren’t really any bad ideas,” Molly Flanagan, vice president of policy for the Alliance for the Great Lakes, told Detroit News.
We will be sure to update this story to let you know when you can submit any proposals.
