Inventions for the future were on display today in the Bright Ideas showcase and contest.
Bright Ideas is the competitive event of Marketplace for Kids.
The projects on display are business ideas and inventions created from kids throughout the state.
29 students competed for awards in several categories such as: invention, business idea, and technology.
This is the fourth year for the Bright Ideas competition.
Executive Director of Marketplace for Kids, Marilyn Kipp, says the projects continue to get better each year but encouraging the students to think of new ideas is what the contest is all about.
(Marilyn Kipp, Executive Director, Marketplace for Kids) "The idea is, that every idea a student comes up with is a good idea. We want them to feel really free to develop their creativity and be able to showcase it in an environment that is a safe environment for them to be able to do that."
