Innovation Tank

Let’s hear your big idea! The FARE Teen Summit Innovation Tank offers teens the opportunity to present an innovative idea that could help improve the lives of people with food allergies. We want you to develop a bold solution to a problem within the food allergy community and showcase it at FARE's second annual Innovation Tank!

The second Innovation Tank will be bigger than ever, featuring two submission categories.

Concept Category: Teens must research and present a well thought out concept for how to address a problem faced by the food allergy community. The winner of this category will be named FARE's Rising Young Innovator of the Year.

Prototype Category: Teens must have taken their well thought out concept for addressing a problem in the food allergy community and turned it into a real prototype, service or product. The winner of this category will be named FARE's Young Innovator of the Year.  

Teens wishing to be considered for either category must submit a video up to 60 seconds long explaining their idea and how it will impact the food allergy community. Video submissions must answer the following questions:

  • What is your idea?
  • What problem does it solve within the food allergy community?
  • How would the community access your product or service?
  • Prototype submissions must also feature the prototype, service or product.

Submissions are due by 11:59pm PT on Monday, July 31, 2017.

Up to 8 finalists will win free conference registration, airfare and two hotel nights for themselves and one parent/guardian, and must be available to present to a panel of judges and Teen Summit attendees on Friday, November 10, 2017 in Newport Beach, CA.
