Has your kid always dreamed of being on TV? The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon is giving science-loving kids a shot to be on his show thanks to a new STEM competition for kids.

In partnership with Camp Invention, a program run by the non-profit National Inventors Hall of Fame, young inventors  are invited to send a video entry showing off their working model or prototype. If your kid is selected as the winning inventor, she’ll win an all-expenses paid trip to NYC (we know it’s local but a Big Apple paid hotel stay would be pretty awesome, right?) and some airtime on The Tonight Show. Amazing.

Here are the specs for entering:

  • Film a 60-second video of your kid (ages 5-18) including his or her name, age, hometown, invention name and a demonstration of his or her  super cool creation.

  • Upload the video to YouTube, then email the link to Camp Invention at tonightshow@invent.org and The Tonight Show at davidtonightshow@gmail.com.

  • In the email, include the inventor’s name, age and hometown, the name of the invention, the name, phone number and email of a parent or guardian, any awards or media attention the invention has earned and a brief explanation of why the invention differs from what’s already on the market.

The deadline for submissions is February 1. For more information on Camp Invention, visit campinvention.org. For STEM inspo, check out these GE Fallonventions from last year.
