The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon shared some exciting news with us regarding a February taping! The program plans to feature young inventors during a segment and approached us for assistance in finding children for this national opportunity. Because we were developed by the Inductees to the National Inventors Hall of Fame and the fact that Camp Invention is a renowned leader in the field of children's education, they felt we are a great partner to help spread the word.
Who The Tonight Show is looking for:
An outgoing, energetic boy or girl aged 5-16 with a clever, fun, interesting invention who's willing to make a 1-2 minute video that showcases the inventor and invention.
What they need in the video submission:
A simple video (you can use a video camera or a smartphone) that features the following things:
How to send it:
Make sure the email includes:
DEADLINE - Monday, February 3rd, 2014 by 4:00 PM EST.
Please note that we'll be getting lots of submissions from across the country and while we appreciate you taking the time to submit and will look at every submission we get, we won't be able to personally respond to all of them. There is no guarantee any child's submission to Camp Invention will be selected by The Tonight Show.
