The Kavli Foundation is challenging Grades 6-12 students across the world to brainstorm and share their ideas! This year's contest theme was inspired by the National Academy of Engineering's Grand Challenges. The NAE recently asked some of the world's leading technological thinkers to identify what needs to be done to make people and our planet thrive.

Students worldwide were invited to submit entries to the 2012 video contest, with cash awards and prizes for the top entries. Selected videos were shown at the Festival Expo April 27-29, 2012, where hundreds of thousands of science fans gathered in Washington, D.C. The first place winner received a travel stipend to attend the Expo.


The National Association of Secondary School Principals placed this program on the

NASSP National Advisory List of Student Contests and Activities

for 2011-2012.
