Prizes valued at $25,000 to USA public, private, and parochial schools to engage students in grades 6-10 and their teachers in explorative learning. This opportunity uses a STEAM-focused multi-disciplinary learning approach to empower students to explore their world through building and creating.

The Innovation Generation contest invites educators and community adults to vote daily for a school of their choice to win a grand prize of a Makerspace. Two lucky schools with the most votes will win.

Prizes:
Two (2) Grand Prizes will be made available, each consisting of a grand total of $25,000 in merchandise, services, and/or grant funds (collectively, the “Prize Elements”; all to be selected and determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion) to be used by the winning school to create and equip a Makerspace at the school.

The eligible school which qualifies for the Title I Schoolwide Program and receives the highest number of Weighted Entries will receive one (1) Grand Prize, pending verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules. After this school has been determined, the remaining eligible school (irrespective of Title I Status) which receives the highest number of Weighted Entries will receive one (1) Grand Prize, pending verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules.

Title I Schoolwide Program schools are schools with percentages of low-income students of at least 40 percent as defined by the US Department of Education.
