Discovery Education and 3M  announce the opening of the 14th annual Discovery Education 3M Young Scientist Challenge, which rewards middle school students for their science acumen, demonstration of innovation and curiosity, and communication skills. Through the Challenge, students have the opportunity to compete for $25,000 and the title of “America’s Top Young Scientist.”

The Challenge asks students to create a one to two-minute video communicating the science behind a possible solution to an everyday problem related to one of the following categories:

· The Way We Move
· The Way We Keep Ourselves Healthy
· The Way We Make a Difference

Ten finalists will be selected to participate in an exclusive summer mentorship program working directly with a 3M scientist. Each finalist also will receive a trip to the 3M Innovation Center in St. Paul, Minn., to compete in the final challenge in October, 2012.

All video entries must be submitted online at www.youngscientistchallenge.com no later than April 19, 2012. Videos will not be judged on production skills and may be recorded on cell phones or basic digital cameras.
