$1 million Innovation Challenge for Scouts

The BSA has teamed with Edison Nation®, an idea-to-shelf product developer, to create the Boy Scouts of America Innovation Challenge, where today’s kids can develop tomorrow’s products. Whether the invention solves a problem around the house, the yard, or at school; helps you take better care of your pet; or creates a new way to learn or play, the goal of the BSA and Edison Nation is to inspire young minds to submit their creative, new product ideas.

Edison Nation will invest up to $1 million to develop the selected ideas and help bring them to market. Selected inventors will receive a cash advance, royalties for life from the sale of their products, be named the “inventor” on any issued patents, and have an opportunity to appear on the award-winning Everyday Edisons television series. The challenge is open to all boys and girls ages 7 to 21, and does not require that the young person be associated with the BSA to submit ideas or be selected as an “inventor.”
