The Spirit of Innovation Awards

The following is a message from Clementine L. Ntshaykolo of the Conrad Foundation:

The Spirit of Innovation Awards program challenges teams of high school students to create innovative products using science, technology, and entrepreneurship. Last year’s Spirit of Innovation Awards exceeded our wildest dreams. Teams came from all over the United States and we even had a team from China. I want to extend to you a personal invitation to participate in the 2009/2010 Spirit of Innovation Awards challenges. Please see www.conradawards.org for a full description of this year’s challenge categories. Teacher’s serving as a team’s coach will also receive awards and recognition for themselves and their schools.
