Thanks for your interest in Young Re-Inventor of the Year! You can submit your entries anytime between now and Monday 21 October using this form. Your submission should include photos of your invention along with a brief description (200 words maximum) that addresses the judging criteria (below).

Images submitted may be used in future promotion of Switch your thinking and Young Re-inventor of the Year.
Please contact us if you are experiencing technical difficulties or would like further information.

All entrants will receive a participation certificate and be in the running to share in $3000 in prizes. Entries will be judged on:
  • Waste reduction – does your invention creatively use items that are routinely thrown away at your school or in your home or community and a minimal amount of new materials?
  • Relation to the 2018 theme (have you collected plastic loot and re-invented it into something to be treasured?)
  • Practicality – is your invention useful? Does it suit its purpose?
  • Aesthetics – Does your invention look appealing?
