Paradigm Challenge Scholarship details?

I recently came across the Paradigm Challenge Scholarship. Can someone provide more information about it, including eligibility requirements and how to apply?

Sure! The Paradigm Challenge is an annual competition that encourages students aged 4 to 18 to use their creativity and innovation skills to create solutions for real-world problems. The competition focuses on three different age divisions: ages 4-8, 9-13, and 14-18. Each annual challenge is based on a specific theme, with past themes including fire safety, waste reduction, and personal health.

To be eligible for the competition, participants must be aged 4 to 18 at the time of entry. The competition accepts entries from individuals, as well as from teams of up to 4 individuals. One big advantage is you can participate from anywhere in the world - there are no specific citizenship requirements. Both STEM and non-STEM projects are welcome, and entries can include inventions, public service announcements, websites, mobile applications, or anything that fits the theme of the challenge.

To apply, you need to submit your project online through the Paradigm Challenge website. Entries should include a brief description of your project, an explanation of how it addresses the chosen theme, and any required supporting materials such as images or video demonstrations.

Judging is based on several factors, including project effectiveness, feasibility, innovation, collaboration, and presentation. Cash prizes are awarded to the top entries in each age division, with a grand prize of $100,000, as well as numerous additional prizes ranging from $500 to $10,000.

The competition typically opens for entries each year in the fall and closes in the spring. Make sure to keep an eye on the Paradigm Challenge website for updates on important dates, this year's theme, and detailed entry guidelines. Good luck!
