A Conservapedia challenge is an unsolved problem or task that offers the promise of bettering society when lawfully accomplished.
- The first Conservapedia challenge is to find a legal means for obtaining public disclosure of Lenski's federally funded data.
- A proposed Conservapedia Challenge for the start of 2009 is to create an Essay:Conservapedia Elevator Story, a short, focused message about what we are doing and why it is important, which can be told in about 30 seconds. The value of having an elevator story for Conservapedia is that it makes it easy to promote what this site stands for in casual encounters like parties, "water-cooler" conversations, etc. without getting so wordy that attention is lost.
