Trailblazing Young Innovators Announced For NFTE World Series Of Innovation, Presented By Microsoft

The competition, a featured event for the 2012 Global Entrepreneurship Week ( Nov. 12-18), featured groups of two or more students competing in up to six innovation challenges by creating a new, unique or innovative product or service to address that market niche. Teams showcased how their product or service will impact people's daily lives and how they will market their innovations.  Submissions consisted of a description of their entry, a marketing pitch for the product or service, a customer profile and a 60-second commercial.

NFTE was proud to have  Microsoft  as the presenting sponsor of the World Series of Innovation and sponsor of the "Mobile Game" and "Mobile App" design categories, challenging students to create tablet/smartphone apps and games that raise awareness and provide solutions for common student and school issues.  Microsoft will also explore the option to connect the winning teams with a development partner to take the idea and bring it to market.

The students in each winning team receive a total grant of $2,000 from the sponsors and NFTE plus $500 for their school or youth serving organization as well as a Microsoft Xbox Kinect bundle.  The students of each winning team also received prize packages from their categories' sponsors, such as a mobile device from Microsoft and gift cards from Coca-Cola and Amazon, and merchandise from Sean John .
