Discovery Education and 3M announced today the top 10 finalists in the 14th annual Discovery Education 3M Young Scientist Challenge (http://www.youngscientistchallenge.com) science competition for students in grades 5-8. Students nationwide were asked to create a short video describing a new innovative solution that would impact an everyday problem, and these budding young scientists rose to the top of their peers due to the scientific ingenuity and inventive thinking demonstrated in their entry videos.

Each finalist will have an exclusive opportunity to work directly with a 3M Scientist during a summer mentorship program where the finalist will be challenged to create an innovation that solves a problem he/she has identified in everyday life. 

Each finalist will receive $1,000 and be awarded a trip to 3M Headquarters to participate in the final event on Oct. 15-16. The winner will receive $25,000, a trip from Discovery Student Adventures and the title of “America’s Top Young Scientist.”
