Spellman High Voltage Electronics Clean Tech Competition

2020 Theme: “Reducing Individual Impacts”

To register:


The only global innovation competition for 15-18 year old students wants to see projects from you! Every year we have teams from dozens of nations submit their work, which absolutely THRILLS us because the problem of sustainability is a burden felt across the globe. With no fee to register, why not sign a team up today! Our Finals are July 2nd, 2020 in Washington D.C., and we would love to see you there!

This year’s theme of Reducing Individual Impacts encapsulates the struggle we all go through daily; one where it feels like you as an individual are unable to do much in the grand scheme of things, but you wish to make a difference, and what to know how to do so. In this running of our annual event, we are looking to our competitors to help us answer this existential question. But as we know, this struggle can vary deeply all over the world, depending on the means your community has. Which leads us to our categories:

Limited Resources

Abundant Resources

We want students from Idaho and everywhere else to research a specific area and challenge, then propose something that individuals can do to reduce their footprint and solve that challenge, based on having limited or an excess of resources. There are quite literally a world of problems out there we can solve, making the possibilities for your students almost endless. Challenge them today to make that difference!
