Mighty Minds

The Mighty Minds Contest Recognizes Outstanding Young Innovators

Our annual contest is open exclusively to Camp Invention alumni.

Share innovative ideas

Win a trip to Washington D.C.

Meet famous inventors

Connecting creative children with accomplished inventors

Each year, we invite children who have attended Camp Invention to enter our Mighty Minds contest. 

Participants share their imaginative ideas and goals, and we select a grand-prize winner who will enjoy an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, D.C., an on-stage spotlight at the National Inventors Hall of Fame® Induction Event and the opportunity to spend time with Inductees — our real-life innovation superheroes.

Competitive excitement

Mighty Minds builds on the creative fun of Camp Invention in a whole new way.

Lasting inspiration

Our winner will never forget having one-on-one conversations with visionary inventors.

The 2019 competition details will be released early in 2019.

Congratulations to our 2018 Mighty Minds winners!
