The Earth Fest Green Inventors Contest is expanding its reach to schools all across the Iron Range and is adding an open division for adults.
The April 9 contest in Mountain Iron is an opportunity for students and adults to show off their imaginations and creativity and to receive recognition for their “green” inventions designed to solve a sustainability problem or make something more environmentally friendly.
Prizes will be awarded to the top three winners in the school divisions: grades 4-6, 7-8, 9-12.
The top two winners in the adult division will be invited to participate in the Northeast Entrepreneur Fund seminar “Build a Business ... Here’s How” as a first step to explore the possibility of bringing an invention to the market.
The contest is hosted by the Iron Range Partnership for Sustainability and Cliffs Natural Resources. Earth Fest is a celebration of local traditions and practical resources for sustainable living on the Iron Range, offering opportunities to explore how we can all live more sustainably in our homes and communities, our economy, and our environment.
