Video Contest

If you have a big idea in the realm of science, technology or math which is a game changer than this is the contest for you.

NPR has created a unique video contest for people ages 13 to 25. Inventors can make the video by themselves or with a team of up to three people. The video can be no longer than 2 minutes. All entries have to be in by 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 12.

This science invention competition is seeking out the everyday inventor. It’s geared toward younger people who are not doctors and scientists. There are many inventors with great scientific ideas yet no platform to display them.

One grand prize winner will be chosen by judges on the NPR Science Desk. That person will have the opportunity to meet with a leader in a relevant field of science for advice on how to make the idea a reality. NPR will also help spread the word about your big idea by posting 10 of the best ideas on NPR’s YouTube channel. Even if you don’t win, NPR may showcase your video on their website.

The video can be as simple as the inventor talking about the idea or as complex as an animation showing how it works. If you or anyone you know has the next big idea and needs help with it, please contact us at New Product Consulting.
