Staples Invention Quest

We know you're a regular Alexander Gram Bell - or at least a Violet Baudelaire - but why not prove your powers of invention with Staples' Invention Quest Competition? Check out the details of this creative competition.

Staples Invention Quest - What's it All About?

Staples Invention Quest allows peeps to submit their ideas for the next new office product or school supply. For the first time ever, Staples is introducing a kids-only category in partnership with By Kids For Kids. Anyone under the age of 18 can enter their best school supply invention for the chance to win $25,000!

Staples Invention Quest - How to Enter

To enter Invention Quest you can either visit your local Staples store and complete the admission form or enter online at www.inventionquest.com. The winner will receive a $25,000 cash prize, plus royalties if the product is created and sold by Staples. Fifteen additional finalists will each get a cash prize of $5,000. Staples Invention Quest winners will be chosen in April 2007. The deadline for entry is November 27, 2006 so get inventing!

Staples Invention Quest - Brainstorming Ideas

  • Try to think of something that would make your school life easier or more interesting. If your pencil is always dull maybe you could invent a self-sharpening pencil!
  • Improve upon what you've already got. Maybe you really like those magnetic picture frames in your locker. Why not improve upon them by designing frames that automatically rotate a series of pictures - or play a song when you open your locker.
  • The more, the merrier. Come up with as many ideas as you can and then see which ones will be easiest to develop into the real thing.

I don't mind temporary tattoos or ear piercings. I'm not gonna lie, I almost threw up last time I saw someone with a permanent tattoo... Seeing them makes me feel sick to my stomach.
