Who can be inducted?

Each year up to six students K-12 are selected from a pool of applicants.


How can I nominate or apply?

You can download an application with all the details you need or request one by mail.


How are inductees selected?

The young inventors selected for induction are chosen by a group of their peers (high school students) called the student board of directors. We believe that since this program is for the sake of our country's youth, its inductees should be chosen by young people.The student board is overseen by an adult board of advisors made up of outstanding business men and women as well as accomplished inventors.
