The Spark!Lab Invention Contest is simple: gather some used plastic bags, use them to create a useful or whimsical invention, snap a photo and email it to us (along with your name, age, and hometown) to sparklab@si.edu before July 20th. If you are under 13, you must have parental permission to submit your photo.

A team of Smithsonian invention experts will pick the winners, to be announced by July 30. The winning inventors will receive a special Spark!Lab T-shirt, and all entrants will have their invention photos posted on the Spark!Lab website!
