Dear Parent:

Thank you for your interest in registering your child for participation in the TCS Discovery Education “Ignite Innovation Student Challenge” (the “Contest”), a national contest in which students in Grades 6 – 8, working alone or in teams of up to four students, will be challenged to create a digital solution that solves a problem in one of these areas: Health, Our Planet, or Education.

To participate in the Contest, your child (together with his/her teammates, if entering as a team) must create a one- to two-minute video or written description that addresses the challenge outlined in the contest entry information. The entry may contain your child's likeness, image, voice or other identifiable features.

The judges will consider the creativity, content, persuasiveness and effective communication, and overall presentation of the entries. Top prizes include up to a $10,000 scholarship and the chance to work with TCS to make their idea come to life. For information on the other prizes to be awarded and the complete details of the Contest, please see the Official Rules or visit www.IgniteMyFutureInSchool.org/Challenge.
