Undergraduate students considering participating in the 2012 InVenture Prize have until Friday, Nov. 18, to submit their Intent to Compete forms.
The InVenture Prize at Georgia Tech is an innovation competition for undergraduate students at the Institute. Students can work independently or in teams to develop and present inventions which will be judged by a panel of experts. Up to 10 inventions will be selected from preliminary rounds to advance to a final round, where two inventions will be selected as winners.
The past two years the competition's final round has aired live on Georgia Public Broadcasting, and teams have won up to $15,000 for their inventions.
Submitting an Intent to Compete informs the Office of Undergraduate Research and Student Innovation about your idea and assists with their planning, but does not obligate you to compete in the competition. Additionally, it is only necessary at this time to specify a category for your entry, but not a full description or abstract. Those who submit an Intent to Compete will have until Jan. 13, 2012, to register and fully disclose their ideas. The final round will take place on March 13, 2012; a full schedule for the 2012 competition is available online.
