10 YEARS OF BRIGHT IDEAS
The Thomas Edison Pitch Contest was created in 2010 as a competition to showcase and encourage invention, innovation and entrepreneurship among students before they get to college. Every year, students submit their great ideas to win prizes and gain the hands-on experience exclusive to our contest!
A STEM Challenge Inspiring Innovation
Important Info: Regarding the COVID-19 outbreak we are closely monitoring news & reports from the CDC and we are confident that our digital contest is well-equipped to handle complications.
Due to changes in school schedules across the country, we've extended the final deadline for your projects to April 30, 2020. Hopefully, this extension will help your teams to complete your prototype & final presentation video on time!
We'll provide updates on details of the final pitch event (currently scheduled for May 13) as the date nears.
