Every year InventOR student teams develop a vast array of inventions solving problems that affect our community, environment, and people's lives. It is challenging to find a group of judges with expertise on product design and business development.

For that reason, we rely on a core group of judges with the innovation and entrepreneurship experience needed to evaluate each concept; they will score each team using the InventOR judging rubric to help determine the winning InventOR teams.
