Discovery Education and 3M announce the opening of the 17th annual Discovery Education 3M Young Scientist Challenge for students in grades 5-8. Through the program, students have the opportunity to work closely with a 3M Scientist Mentor, compete for $25,000, and earn the title of “America's Top Young Scientist.”

Any student in grades 5-8 can enter the contest by creating a one to two-minute video communicating the science behind a possible solution to an everyday problem.

Video entries will be evaluated based on their creativity, scientific knowledge, persuasiveness and overall presentation. Ten finalists will then be chosen to participate in an exclusive mentorship program where they will work closely with a 3M scientist. During the program, finalists will be challenged to develop an innovation that positively impacts them, their family, their community or the global population. The students will meet virtually with their mentors and will receive additional resources and support from 3M and Discovery Education. Each finalist will also receive a trip to the 3M Innovation Center in St. Paul, Minn., to compete at the final event in October 2015.

All video entries must be submitted online at www.youngscientistchallenge.com no later than April 21, 2015. Videos will not be judged on production skills and may be recorded on cell phones or basic digital cameras.
