GREEN The National Inventors Hall of Fame is seeking submissions for its Collegiate Inventors Competition.
Inventions are judged by a panel of National Inventors Hall of Fame inductees and United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) experts for feedback on optimizing the potential of each invention.
Finalists will showcase their inventions and interact with thousands of attendees, including USPTO examiners, event sponsors, media and the public, at the November Collegiate Inventors Competition Expo & Awards at the USPTO Headquarters in Alexandria, Va.
Finalists receive an all-expenses-paid trip to the Washington, D.C., area. Prizes will be awarded to the top three finalist teams ($10,000, $5,000 and $2,500), along with their advisers, in the undergraduate and graduate divisions.
The submission deadline is June 5. For eligibility requirements and to submit an entry, visit www.invent.org/challenge/application-process.
