The competition invites children from the United States to create an invention to improve the quality of life for people with hearing loss. The contest celebrates children’s creativity and aims to improve understanding of the challenges associated with hearing loss and deafness as well as the benefits of treatment.
The contest will open on Saturday, November 9, 2019, in celebration of World Inventors’ Day. Entries must be submitted to ideas4ears.org by midnight EST on Friday, January 17, 2020, which is also Kid Inventors’ Day.
Open to children aged 6-12 years old, the Ideas4Ears contest encourages the youngest generation of inventors to share ideas designed to improve the quality of life for people with hearing loss. Participants are asked to showcase their invention through various media, such as artwork, drawings, videos, or sculptures. The contest is designed to challenge kids with their creative skills: a new invention, an improvement to something that already exists, or a clever idea that helps people with hearing loss and makes their lives easier.

Winners will be announced on January 31, 2020.
