The 28th Annual Invention Convention hosted by Educational Service Unit #11 of Holdrege, and organized by Janelle Jack, Gifted Education Coordinator, was held Thursday, March 21, 2019, at the Nebraska Prairie Museum in Holdrege. 146 inventors in Grades 3rd-7th participated. Participating schools included: Alma, Bertrand, Cambridge, Franklin, Holdrege, and Minden.
Students were first judged in their grade level which was divided into groups called “Inventor’s Circles”. There were 15 different Inventor’s Circles which each had a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winner. The judges then picked an overall winner for each Grade Level (3rd – 7th). Each student is given one vote for the Harold Warp Memorial Inventor’s Choice Award.
