In partnership with the Red Cross, The Paradigm Challenge is an annual competition that inspires youth innovation to address important social issues. The first annual Challenge aims to generate new ideas to prevent injuries and fatalities from home fires—America’s #1 disaster threat.
The challenge is open to kids from 7-18 and welcomes all ideas, including posters, videos, inventions, messages, community events, websites, mobile apps, or anything else that will help save lives.
A blue-ribbon panel of judges will evaluate entries based on effectiveness, feasibility, originality, presentation, and collaboration. Members of the public will also vote for their favorite finalist from May 11, 2016 to May 25, 2016. In addition to the prize money, Project Paradigm intends to provide further support to help turn winning ideas into saved lives.
The top 100 teams will win cash prizes from $500 to the $100,000 Grand Prize. Up to 4 members from the top 3 teams will also receive a 4-day/3-night trip to Los Angeles to attend The Paradigm Challenge Awards Ceremony.
