The top 100 entries win up to $100,000 and the first place winners in each age division (4-8, 9-13, 14-18) win a 4-day/ 3-night trip to Los Angeles to attend The Paradigm Challenge Prize Ceremony.

The Paradigm Challenge is an international competition open to students in the United States and around the world that was created by Project Paradigm in collaboration with the American Red Cross and a wide coalition of partners. Project Paradigm is a national private foundation headquartered in Los Angeles.
The Paradigm Challenge presents multiple high quality project based learning opportunities for students pre-K through 12. Past Challenge winners lead video lessons that help build student problem-solving skills, emotional intelligence, and character. These videos, together with print lessons and supporting materials, provide students with step-by-step guidance on how to solve problems and innovate kindness.
Project Paradigm funds, operates, and makes all final decisions regarding The Paradigm Challenge.
