2020 World Series of Innovation

NFTE’s World Series of Innovation is a global, online competition that invites young people (ages 13-24) to submit innovative ideas that address some of the biggest challenges facing humanity today and help advance the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Young innovators from across the globe enter the competition every fall and compete for cash prizes. You can compete solo or invite friends to join you and compete as a team. Teams can be affiliated with schools or youth development organizations or independent. The best three ideas submitted in each challenge category win cash prizes! The first place finisher receives $1500, the second place finisher receives $600, and the third place finisher receives $300.

Educators interested in using the World Series of Innovation in the classroom or encouraging student participation as an extracurricular enrichment opportunity can access a robust toolkit with additional resources.

The entry period starts on September 14 and ends at 11pm ET on December 14.
