The Breakthrough Junior Challenge—presented by the Breakthrough Prize and Khan Academy—invites students 13 through 18 to submit a 10-minute video that illustrates a challenging concept or theory of mathematics, life sciences, or physics in an engaging, illuminating, and creative way. Make the best video and you’ll win a $250,000 post-secondary scholarship! Seriously.

That’s an amazing prize, and an amazing opportunity. And there are also prizes available for participating teachers and schools.

The deadline for submission is October 7, 2015—so get busy!
