The Paradigm Challenge is an ongoing competition that invites students up to age 18 from around the world to use kindness, creativity, and collaboration to help solve real-life problems and make a difference. Students may enter the Paradigm Challenge individually or as teams of any size. All types of entries are welcome, including posters, videos, inventions, public messages, community events, websites, mobile apps, or anything else that will help address one or more of the Paradigm Challenge Projects.
Project Paradigm will select no less than 100 entries as Paradigm Challenge Finalists. Finalists will be selected throughout the current Challenge as entries are submitted. A blue-ribbon panel of judges will evaluate Finalist entries based on effectiveness, feasibility, originality, presentation, and collaboration to determine the First, Second, Third, and Grand Prize winners. All Finalists will be publicly announced in August. Up to four team members associated with the top entry in each age division (and a parent or guardian for each team member) will receive a 4-day/3-night trip to Los Angeles to attend The Paradigm Challenge Prize Ceremony.
