Second Annual Global Student Invention Contest Launched

ePals Corporation today announced the launch of Invent It, the second annual invention contest for K-12 students in partnership with the Smithsonian’s Lemelson Center for the Study of Invention and Innovation.

This year the contest includes both a school theme and an opened-ended theme choice for students seeking more freedom in their creative projects.

  • Challenge 1: Think about a problem in your school and come up with an invention to solve it.
  • Challenge 2: Find an invention that is used in your school and tell us how you would improve upon it.
  • Challenge 3: Think about a real- world problem that exists today and invent something that could help solve it.

The deadline for submitting inventions to the Invent It contest is January 4, 2013. For details and to enter an invention project, visit
