Invention Convention U.S. Nationals is an annual celebration of K-12 inventors and entrepreneurs from across the U.S. The event provides a live, in-person opportunity for youth inventors and entrepreneurs in grades K-12 to display their critical thinking skills through inventing, innovating, and entrepreneurial activities.
This is an invitation-only event. The goal is to inspire tomorrow’s youth by creating this national showcase those whose efforts embody America’s inventive and entrepreneurial spirit.
Each year, student “winners” from affiliate member youth invention and entrepreneurship competitions across the U.S. are invited to attend the U.S. Nationals event. The event acts as a U.S. national “finals” competition of local, regional, state and sectional invention competitions across the U.S. “Feeder” events will not only include invention conventions and entrepreneurship competitions across the U.S., but also science fair and engineering competitions wherein projects meet the submission requirements of the National Invention Convention event. Also, each year, a limited number of students are issued invitations through the Invention Convention Independent Inventor Program screening program.
