The Boy Scouts of America and Edison Nation have come together to challenge kids between the ages of 7 to 21 years old to participate in the Boy Scouts of America Innovation Challenge.
The Innovation Challenge is looking to today’s kids to develop tomorrow’s products. Whether the invention solves a problem around the house, the yard or at school; helps you take better care of your pet; or creates a new way to learn or play, the BSA and Edison Nation® goal is to inspire young minds to submit creative, new product ideas.
Edison Nation® will invest up to $1 million to develop the selected ideas and help bring them to market. Selected inventors will receive royalties for life from the sale of their products, be named the “inventor” on any issued patents, and have an opportunity to appear on the award-winning Everyday Edisons television series.
It is free to join the Edison Nation® online community and costs just $25 to submit an idea ($10 for current Boy Scouts of America members who submit an idea as a part of this challenge). Because the Boy Scouts of America Innovation Challenge is for youth inventors, a parent or guardian is required to be involved during the submission process for those under the age of 18.
