Congratulations Semi-Finalist Teams!

Congratulations to the 2014-2015 Conrad Spirit of Innovation Challenge Semi-Finalists!

You have cleared Earth's orbit!

Click here for complete list of Semi-Finalist Teams.  Many high school (secondary) teams submitted promising entries, and we look forward to seeing these teams complete their Innovation Portfolios for a chance to attend the Innovation Summit at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex and be recognized as a Pete Conrad Scholar.

Unfortunately, we did not receive enough entries in the college/military (post-secondary) competition to allow us to continue with this category as defined.  Instead, all post-secondary teams that submitted a promising Investor Pitch will be recognized as a Semi-Final Team and given the option of submitting an Innovation Portfolio.  Your Innovation Portfolio will be judged for a chance to attend the Innovation Summit and be recognized with a distinct prize.  Alternatively, any post-secondary Semi-Final team that does not wish to continue by submitting an Innovation Portfolio can obtain a refund of their registration fee.

All Semi-Finalist Teams will receive an email directing them to further instructions on how to register for the Innovation Portal and to register their team to submit a Semi-Final Innovation Portfolio.

The deadline for registration at the Innovation Portal is Monday, December 22nd. 

Conrad Challenge Prepares Students For Success

Conrad Challenge Founder Nancy Conrad recently caught up with the winners of the first Conrad Spirit of Innovation Award, Talia Nour-Omid and Michael Hakimi, at the school they used to attend, the Milken Community High School.  With them is their former teacher and coach Roger Kassebaum, the first Conrad Challenge Teacher of the Year.  Watch and learn how they benefited from participating in the Conrad Challenge!
