Want to reward your students for their creativity? SAE projects are a natural fit.

My team does too. My team and I developed an awards program called Innovators (CHSI). We looking for the most innovative and creative high school students from around the world. Our goal is to find them, network them, and give them kick starters to continue their work. No strings attached.

This year will be the 7th year for our annual competition. In the last 6 years, Innovators has awarded over $200,000 in cash prizes, scholarships to university, and in-kind support to high school students globally. We want to support your students too.

We know that you prepare students to solve problems and produces leaders, innovators, entrepreneurs, stewards, creators, and builders. We want to celebrate and reward your students for their brilliance in one or more of the following areas:

1. Arts, Media & Literature

2. Business Entrepreneurship

3. Social Entrepreneurship

4. Health & Nutrition

5. Science, Technology, Engineering & Math (STEM)

What do they need to do?
Summit 1000 words and a short video on what makes them exceptional. That’s it.

Where is it at and when does it take place?
The first round of the competition takes place virtually from February 14 to March 4th at a time arranged by the teams with our judges.

The Innovators finals is team choice of virtual or in person at Illinois State University in Normal, Illinois USA on April 9th starting at 8:00 Central Time.
