Student Board

Student Board Group

The National Student Board of Directors is comprised of students (grades 9-12) from from across the United States and one alumni advisor. Recently, the Student Board works virtually to review the National Gallery entries and chooses up to six young inventors for the honor of Induction into the National Gallery for America's Young Inventors. The Student Board may use adult advisors (teachers, our Executive Director, other professionals) to help them while considering the entries, but the evaluation and judging is solely the responsibility of the Student Board.

This is an excellent way to build your resume for employment or entrance to university, as well as an opportunity to support other students' achievements!

* If there is funding for the Induction Ceremony, the Board meets in Akron, Ohio to host the banquet and honor the new Inductees. (All expenses for travel, meals and lodging are paid for by the National Museum of Education.)

If you are a High School student and would like to be part of preserving the ideas and innovations of your generation, consider joining the Student Board. Your voice and expertise in deciding the Inductees to the National Gallery for America's Young Inventors are important to making positive changes for our world!
