What can fly 1,000 miles in 30 hours, destroying crops the whole way? An invasive pest called fall armyworm.

This insect may be small, but it’s a big threat to food security. It is marching across Africa, devastating farmers.

USAID is seeking digital tools that can help farmers identify fall armyworm and stop it in its tracks. If you can help, you could win $400,000. Enter the prize competition here by May 14.
