Pete Conrad Spirit of Innovation Award Registration OpenThis is an announcement to all those who know high school aged students. The Pete Conrad Spirit of Innovation Award registration is now open. This award is for students age 13 to 18. Within the next two months, student teams must develop their own innovative concept to benefit the personal spaceflight industry in 50 year’s timeframe. Teams will compile their concept into three documents: a technical document, a business/marketing document, and a graphical representation. Finalists will be brought to the Wirefly X PRIZE Cup to display their concept to the public. Awards include $9000 in prize money, travel grants to attend the Wirefly X PRIZE Cup, inclusion on a national traveling museum exhibit, rocket trophies, and the unique opportunity to connect students directly with commercial companies in the personal spaceflight industry.
