2020 Connecticut Invention Convention State Finals UPDATE

  In light of the unprecedented coronavirus (COVID-19), the event will now be held entirely ONLINE. 

The wellbeing and safety of our inventors, parents, educators, volunteers, sponsors and partners is of paramount importance.  In the coming weeks we will announce details of how the online competition will operate, and will communicate these details on our website and social media, as well as directly to our community. 

TEACHERS: if you have not registered your inventors yet for our event, please wait for further instructions. If you have registered your inventors, we will provide further instructions (on web, email and social to you on next steps) for our new online event. We appreciate your understanding and for your continued support of CIC.  Stay safe!


Young Inventor of the Year Award

Help us celebrate the great work of our student inventors!  Each Wednesday and Saturday beginning January 22 and ending on April 18, we will highlight a past inventor in our social media (Instagram, Facebook and LinkedIn).  At our second finals event in the Spring, the CIC Board of Directors will honor one of these students with the People’s Choice Inventor of the Year Award, based on the number of comments, shares, and likes they receive on our social media. The winner will receive a $500 cash prize.

The inventors chosen to be showcased are long-time participants of the Connecticut Invention Convention and mostly serial inventors, regardless of the amount of accolades they have received. Through this award program, we want to increase exposure of our amazing inventors and to showcase what it means to participate in the Connecticut Invention Convention.  

Below is the list of inventors by day featured.  Be sure to share with your family and friends in order to support the inventors and help them win!
