Global Innovation Award

The FIRST LEGO League Global Innovation Award is designed to showcase the real-world, innovative solutions that FIRST LEGO League teams create as a result of their Project.

FIRST LEGO League trains kids to think like innovators. The award encourages and assists teams to further develop solutions to real-world problems that demonstrate originality and have the potential to add significant value to the world.

For many teams, the innovative solutions created through their FIRST LEGO League Project have led to some amazing opportunities, like receiving local and national media attention, meeting government leaders, and seeing their invention be brought to market.

Each year, we induct 20 new Semi-Finalist teams into the Innovation Ambassadors, a group of FIRST LEGO League Global Innovation Award participants who work to keep innovation alive within their own communities. Innovation Ambassador teams are frequently featured on the FIRST LEGO League blog. Check out some of their stories here.

How do I participate? Global Innovation Award submissions for Adventist Robotics are due March 1 of each year. Teams submit a 3-5 minute Youtube  "Unlisted" video. Teams will submit their video via a form on this page that will be available beginning February 1 of each year.
