Annual high school problem-solving competition

Imagine Tomorrow

May 20–22, 2016

Washington State University, Pullman

Up to $100,000 in cash prizes, thanks to our sponsors

Imagine Tomorrow invites 9th through 12th graders to seek new ways to address grand challenges that will lead to a more sustainable world through such things as facilitating the transition to alternative energy sources. Students research complex issues in four topic areas, then innovate technologies, designs, or plans to mobilize behavior. They forge connections in their communities and create positive change. In this energy competition, as in life, solutions are limited only by imagination.

The 2016 competition brings even more opportunities for winning and expanded challenge topics. There are now a dozen challenges, with students competing for technological, design, or behavior solutions for each of the following topic areas:

Challenge Topic 1: Food, Energy, and Water
Challenge Topic 2: The Boeing Aerospace Challenge
Challenge Topic 3: The NARA Biofuels Challenge
Challenge Topic 4: The McKinstry Built Environment                                            Challenge


Congratulations 2015 winners!
