For the fourth year in a row, Sikorsky is running its Helicopter 2050 Program and Challenge. Through September 30, kids ages 9-16 are invited to submit their designs for a helicopter of the future—a helicopter that addresses the potential challenges of the year 2050, along with a plan for how their helicopter can overcome those challenges.

The winner will receive the Igor Sikorsky Youth Innovator Award along with a $1,000 scholarship. To top it off, the winner will be flown to Sikorsky’s headquarters in Stratford, Connecticut, to tour the assembly line of the iconic Black Hawk and Seahawk military helicopters and meet with Sikorsky rotorcraft engineers.

Last year’s winner, Vance Hudson, 15, of Collierville, Tennessee, designed an S-2050 helicopter with a detachable main section that would allow operators to quickly configure the aircraft for multiple missions or deliver modular loads with resources for people in need.
