Registration is now open for the 2020-2021 K12 InVenture Prize!
Registration for the 2020-2021 K-12 InVenture Prize is now open! Please use the link below to complete your registration (one per school, please). This registration serves several purposes - it tells us how many teachers are utilizing the K-12 InVenture Prize curriculum in their classrooms/student groups, it lets us know how many schools are actively interested in participating in the State Finals on March 17, 2021, and it allows us to support your efforts by knowing what your specific needs and questions are.
Note: for distance learning, pod education, and homeschooling, the per-school fee still applies. We understand that more parents and pod educators may be serving as invention team coaches this year, but we do ask that you keep an educator at your school in the loop.
The deadline to register your school is October 30th, 2020!!

The fee to register is $75.00 per school. Your fee covers access to online pitch day in late October/early November, access to the optional online webinar series, curriculum resources, new teacher mentoring, and consideration for participation in our state finals event.
This year, state finals will most likely be a hybrid event, with majority of the judging completed virtually using both asynchronous and synchronous capabilities. We are continuing to finalize the state finals competition, and we will send teachers email updates throughout the year concerning any changes to the program.
Please take the time to answer each question in the school registration link as accurately as possible. We have included a question regarding mentorship. Whether you are a seasoned K-12 InVenture Prize educator, introducing it for the very first time, or simply in need of some added support, it is our goal to pair experienced and novice teachers in similar teaching circumstances for peer mentoring.
Please feel free to share this email with any colleagues who you think would be interested in participating. As always, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any additional questions.
