My experience with NFTE has been tremendous. NFTE is more than an organization that provides students the opportunity to become great innovators, but NFTE is also like a second home. The mentors and support that NFTE offers provides students with comfort, nurturing, guidance, wisdom, and a great foundation of opportunity.

This year’s World Series of Innovation is the biggest and most competitive World Series we’ve ever held. Students from around the world had the opportunity to submit their innovation to 11 challenges, ranging from beverage marketing plans to new technologies for education, in the hopes of winning the grand prize.

Students from nine nations including Algeria, Haiti, Austria, Chile and Thailand – more than 700 entries overall – shared their innovations this year and could win up to $10,000 in cash and prizes in the challenges.
