Staples Invention Quest invites inventors to submit inventions for easy and innovative office products for a chance to win $25,000, plus royalties if Staples develops and sells your invention. Since the inception of Invention Quest, Staples has received more than 22,000 entries and ideas.
Last year’s contest drew the largest number of submissions to date. From the nearly 14,000 submissions, 10 inventors were chosen to present their ideas at the Invention Quest Finals in New York City.
Staples is trying something new this year, they’re dividing the competition into three separate categories:
* Invention Quest (19 years and older),
* Invention Quest Kids (18 years and younger), and
* Invention Quest Associates (for Staples Associates).
Prize Awarded in Each Category:
4 Finalist Prizes: $5,000, a trip for two to the Invention Quest finals in New York City, PLUS royalties if Staples develops and sells your invention.
Grand Prize: $25,000, a trip for two to the Invention Quest finals in New York City, PLUS royalties if Staples develops and sells your invention.
