2021 Globals Invention Convention is an annual celebration of K-12 inventors and entrepreneurs from all over the world.  The event provides a live, in-person opportunity for youth inventors and entrepreneurs in grades K-12  all over the world 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 worldwide opportunity to showcase those whose efforts embody true inventive and entrepreneurial spirit.  It is a great opportunity to learn from others in one place.

Each year, student “winners” from affiliate member youth invention and entrepreneurship competitions are invited to attend the country’s national events. The finalists from these national events are invited to participate at the 2021 Globals.  The event acts as a “finals” competition of worldwide invention competitions in each country. “Feeder” events will not only include invention conventions and entrepreneurship competitions across the U.S, UK, Australia, Mexico, Japan and many other countries but also science fair and engineering competitions wherein projects meet the submission requirements of the National Invention Convention events. Also, each year, a limited number of students are issued invitations through the Invention Convention Independent Inventor Program screening program.
