Educators and Librarians

Educators and Librarians have always been welcomed

to our Fair as our guests! 

Programs Tailored for Educators, Librarians, Students

Young Inventor Challenge The 14th Annual Young Inventor Challenge, provides an opportunity for children ages 6 to18 to develop and pitch their original inventions to major toy companies, industry professionals, members of the media and general public. This unique and educational experience ignites imagination, creativity and presentation skills like no other, providing a means of taking these inventions to greater heights, with professional critiques from our industry experts.
 

We are the only young inventor program that has sponsorship and mentoring participation from top toy and game manufacturers around the world. Many of the winning inventions have been licensed by these global companies and can be found on store shelves today!

Some winners have got their toy and game ideas licensed by companies - here are three that hit retail shelves this year!
