  • "What's Your Big Idea?' video contest

    Written by witf.org

    NPR is hosting the "What's Your Big Idea?" Video Contest for listeners ages 13 to 25. We want you to share a video pitching your "Big Idea" on YouTube. The contest launched July 9th, and runs through August 12th.

    Your big idea could be a winner if it's powered by science, technology, or math, and is thinking creatively about the kind of innovations needed to make the world a better place.

    Contest entrants will explain their "Big Idea" in a video posted to YouTube and by filling out the submission form here. Joe Palca and members of the science desk will judge the video submissions. The Top 10 Finalists will have their "Big Idea" videos featured at NPR.org, and on the Facebook page for "Joe's Big Idea." The First Place Winner will get personalized advice or commentary from a leader in their field of innovation, facilitated by Joe Palca, on how to make their "Big Idea" become a reality.

    You can enter the contest as an individual or as a team of up to three members. All team members must be in the 13-25 years age group at time of entry. Official rules are posted here.

    The contest and "Joe's Big Idea" series are part of NPR's commitment to offer audiences a greater insight on how scientific developments impact everyday life. The series airs occasionally throughout the summer on Morning Edition on WITF your home for NPR News and All Things Regional.
