The World Cerebral Palsy Day “Invent It” contest is heating up and there are big prizes out there for the best idea. Do you have an idea that could “Change the World in One Minute” for someone with a disability?
World Cerebral Palsy Day is a global awareness and innovation project designed to gather ideas from people living with CP and their supporters and to make the best of those ideas a reality. The first World CP Day in 2012 generated more than 470 ideas for a global competition to prototype them. The winning idea was a solar powered wheelchair inspired by a submission from a man in Turkey and turned into reality by a team at the University of Virginia. World CP Day represents people-power at its best. Who knows, your idea could the one that changes the world for a person with a disability and earn you up to $30,000 in prize money!
All you have to do it submit your idea via text or a short video that can be read or viewed in one minute by October 31. Just visit www.worldcpday.org to submit your idea for what might change the world for a person living with CP or another disability. Ideas will be judged this fall and a call will go out for inventors, innovators and engineers to create designs or prototypes for the winning ideas in January. Winners will be announced in June and awarded their prize.
However, winning it all is not the only way to win. Spot prizes of Apple iPads will be given away during September and October to the most creative and innovative ideas to date and a popular vote contest will be held via social media in October will receive a $500 People’s Choice Award.
