NFTE’s World Series of Innovation is open and ready for your submissions!

September 13, 2013  |  5 comments


Do you have a great idea on how to market the next popular sparking beverage? Have you come up with a new idea for an app, game or technology initiative for the sports and entertainment industry? How about an app for a tablet or smartphone that can help increase students’ literacy and language skills? Come join the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship for the World Series of Innovation!

Whether you’re a current, past or present NFTE student or simply a student who is innovative and shares the entrepreneurial mindset, everyone is invited to participate and to be eligible to win prizes. The Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship’s World Series of Innovation, presented by Microsoft, is a fun, experiential activity that allows students to think creatively and invent new products or services and win prizes for their work!

What’s New This Year:

  • There are ELEVEN different categories to choose from!
  • The Howard G. Buffett Foundation presents four challenges to develop a new solution to an important food or nutrition challenge as a part of their 40 Chances initiative.
  • Our first international challenge! The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies is the world’s largest volunteer based humanitarian network and wants you to develop a tablet/smartphone game or app to help young people test their job-fitness and community readiness skills.
  • Early submission awards! All submissions in any of the 40 Chances categories that are completed (including video upload) by September 30 (at 11:59pm EDT) will be eligible for a prize of $2,500! Two Early Submission Award winners will be selected.

Each team of at least two and not more than five young people (aged 11-24) can select one of eleven innovation challenges and come up with a solution to that challenge.

There will be two winning teams per category: one chosen by a committee of elite judges from the sponsoring organization, and one chosen by popular vote through our online voting platform during Global Entrepreneurship Week.

The winning students in each category will receive a prize package from the sponsor and will share a cash prize with their school or youth group. If a winning youth group is not affiliated with a school or non-profit youth serving organization, that portion of the prize will be donated to a school or non-profit of their choice.

Check out all the categories and enter to win today!
