2015 National Gallery for America’s Young Inventors
Induction Ceremony and Benefit

Table Sponsorship

Dear Friend of Education:

In the fall of 2015, the National Gallery for America’s Young Inventors, the largest program administered by The National Museum of Education, will once again be hosting America’s great young inventors at our Induction Ceremony and Benefit. This is the seventh year that the National Museum of Education is joining with The Edison Innovation Foundation to create a historic partnership to oversee the annual awards program, which features the “Edison Innovation Award”, “The Tommy”. America’s major networks and magazines will be present in Akron to cover this eighteenth annual national event. Our gala celebration will culminate in an elegant banquet and induction ceremony wherein young inventors from kindergarten through senior high school will be recognized for their outstanding inventive achievements.

The quality and engineering of the inventions on display at the banquet are amazing! Each entry is a winner of a national invention contest, has been patented and/or manufactured. This spectacular semi-formal induction ceremony will be a wonderful opportunity for your corporate members and their children to see what these young people from across the country have accomplished. As Peter Haugen, one of our former National Gallery inductees, said, “You will never again be in a room with so many brilliant young people!”

In addition, this year’s speaker will be Dr. Ronald Mallett, a highly motivational speaker and one who will highlight the importance of invention and innovation. He is a world-renowned physicist and author of "The Time Traveler".

Your purchase of a tax-deductible banquet table for $1000 will insure that:
  • A table seating ten will be reserved for your family members, employees, or clients. (If you choose, we will donate unused seats to area students.)
  • Your name will appear in the banquet program as a supporter of the National Gallery for America’s Young Inventors.
  • Your name will appear in a PowerPoint media presentation, which will run before and during the luncheon.
  • You will have the opportunity to meet America’s greatest young inventors and entrepreneurs — America’s future business leaders.
  • Your family and children will get a chance to meet some of the world’s greatest living inventors. (Who knows? One of these inventors may be seated at your table!)
  • You will get to meet our national Student Board of Directors who selected the 2015 inductees.
  • You will have the purchaser’s name entered in a raffle for various prizes.

The 2015 National Gallery Banquet and Ceremony promises to be a celebration of the inventiveness, ingenuity, and entrepreneurship of our country’s brightest and best. This historic event will be something that you and your family will always remember. We look forward to seeing you on September 12, 2015.

If you are unable to attend, your sponsorship of a table for use by area students would be greatly appreciated.

If you prefer to purchase individual seats, the cost is $100/seat.
