Congratulations Ohio’s Young Inventors!

Thank you to all of the young inventors who exercised their super-skills to make it through the invention process and who participated in the 2017 Invention League Regional Video Qualifier!

Thank you to the parents, older siblings and educators who assisted the inventors through a new application system, new video process all in order to participate in the new and first ever Ohio Invention Convention & Entrepreneurship Competition – we know there were some challenges this year with all the “new” things going on and we appreciate your all you did to help make this happen.

Thank you to our talented judges who volunteered their time getting to know Ohio’s best and most brilliant young inventors!
