The 8th annual Conrad Spirit of Innovation Program (Conrad Challenge), in partnership with Destination Imagination (DI), is a multi-phase, innovation and entrepreneurial competition that challenges students and young adults from around the world to use STEM innovation and entrepreneurship to develop world-changing solutions for global sustainability. Participants work together in teams to develop solutions in one of four categories: Aerospace & Aviation, Energy & Environment, Cyber Technology & Security and Health & Nutrition. Teams compete for the opportunity to be recognized as Pete Conrad Scholars and vie for more than $500,000 in awards — including seed-funding grants, investment opportunities, patent support, scholarships and more — to further develop their innovative solution into an entrepreneurial start-up business. The competition is now open to post-secondary university and military teams (ages 19-25 years), in addition to secondary students (ages 13-18). 

Deadline: Oct. 3, 2014
