Thomas Edison Pitch Contest 2020


On May 13th, the Edison Innovation Foundation gave awards to student team finalists from across the country in the annual Thomas Edison Pitch Contest. It was the 10th year of hosting this competition…and the very first held completely over Zoom due to the stay-at-home orders.

The finalists were chosen from 180 teams in 21 states across the country who entered our contest this year.


The student teams from elementary, middle and high school displayed wonderful creativity and inventive spirit as they pitched their final inventions to our panel of expert judges. We thank our partners Gilbane, New Jersey Manufacturers, and PicoSolutions for supporting this exciting event.
