Bright Spark Invention Challenge

The Bright Spark Invention Challenge is a free virtual entrepreneurial innovation competition for 4th-12th grade students hosted by Bridge Innovate. 

Students use the design thinking process to identify a real-world problem, empathize, ideate, and prototype an invention. 

The final submission is a 90-second pitch video posted on Bridge's Youtube channel for public voting. The top 10 invention videos by age group with the most "likes" become the finalists and are forwarded on to a prestigious panel of judges who select the award winners.

The award winners are recognized at the virtual awards event attended by all participating individuals and teams, and live streamed to the public. 

CALLING ALL STUDENT INVENTORS
It's time for the 2022 Invention Challenge! Participation is virtual from start to finish. 

This year, we are asking: “How might we make the world a better and more sustainable place for everyone, including people in the future?” 

Students are encouraged to explore sustainability, identify a real need, design an inventive solution, and present it in a 90-second pitch video. Award winners will receive a certificate, with select top categories also receiving a $100 gift card.

Register for FREE by September 28th, 2022 to participate!

HOW DOES THE COMPETITION WORK?
Identify a challenge to help people and community in need.

Create a solution prototype using the design thinking methodology.

Submit a 90-second pitch video to showcase your invention process and solution.

Pitch videos that receive the most “Likes” on Youtube during the public voting period move on to the next round as finalists.  For districts with 10 or more submissions, the submission with the most likes will be acknowledge as the "people's choice" winner for the school district.
