Ingenuity 2020 poses a simple question to the youth of Northeast Ohio: How do you see the city in the year 2020? It could be a transformation of the lakefront, a new business , a wind farm, a new way of communicating or a new game or sport. Ideas big and small are welcome and will be judged on originality, presentation, feasibility, and creativity.

Kids can submit a video presenting their ideas visually, verbally or in any other creative way they see fit. Ingenuity is working with inner city schools on workshops to give kids an opportunity to record and submit videos from classrooms as well. Kids can submit videos via mail or provide a hyperlink online. A signed consent form is required by an adult to be considered part of the contest.


All videos that meet guidelines and are received with parental consent will be posted on the YouTube channel, but 10 – 12 will be selected to be features on the and promoted throughout its social media network. Each of these finalists will be given the opportunity to present their idea live at the Festival in September. A winner (or winners in categories) will be chosen.
