Celebrated investors such as David Einhorn and Bill Ackman may be the headliners of the annual Sohn Investment Conference in New York, but the organization's 'Investment Idea Contest' often provides great market insight as well.

Both professionals and students are welcome to participate, and the group of judges—chaired by investor Joel Greenblatt and including well-known investors Bill Ackman, David Einhorn, Seth Klarman and Michael Price—seek to identify the most timely and useful investment idea, which is then featured at the conference.
