According to the B’more Green blog, PBS is looking for creative kids and young inventors ages 5-19 to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Earth Day this April by participating in the 2010 Trash to Treasure competition.

This award-winning series challenges contestants to recycle, reuse, and re-engineer everyday materials into new inventions. Three young innovators will win a trip to Boston to see their designs built and have the process chronicled for an upcoming episode of PBS KIDS GO!.

According to Design Squad executive producer Marisa Wolsky, “This is an opportunity for kids to give a second life to an object they or their household would have otherwise discarded. We expect that this year’s entries will run the gamut, from trying to fill a pressing societal need to offering something whimsical and fun.”

The nationwide contest is open for ages 5-19 and will launch online on April 5. Entries will be accepted through September 5, 2010 at PBSKIDSGO
