GLOBAL INNOVATION AWARD
The FIRST ® LEGO® League Global Innovation Award showcases the real-world, innovative solutions created by FIRST LEGO League teams from around the world as part of their annually-themed Challenge.
Demonstrating originality, creativity, potential impact and value, 20 semi-finalist teams from around the world are recognized for their inventions, and receive assistance to further develop solutions, including $20,000 USD to the winning team. Virginia + DC FIRST LEGO League typically gets to nominate 2-3 teams to be considered for the award.
Inspired to be the next generation of innovators, many teams go on to meet government leaders, receive patents, bring their inventions to market, and become entrepreneurs.
