Khan Academy – Breakthrough Junior Challenge $250,000 Scholarship

Is your scholar great at explaining math or science concepts? They could win a $250,000 scholarship! We’re proud to support the Breakthrough Junior Challenge video contest again this year. To enter, your child should create a short (under three minutes) video explaining a challenging concept in physics, mathematics, or the life sciences in an engaging, illuminating, and creative way. In addition to awarding a college scholarship to the winner, the Breakthrough Junior Challenge will give the winner’s teacher a $50,000 prize and the winner’s school a new $100,000 science lab.

Anyone ages 13 through 18 is eligible. The winner will also be invited to an awards ceremony, where the prize will be presented in front of superstars of science, Silicon Valley, and Hollywood.

P.S. The deadline for submission is July 1, 2018. Learn more and register today at
