What is the “Bright Idea Puzzle contest”?

Mpower Bright Idea Puzzle Contest is a scholarship contest open to students in grades 7-12. Students are invited to design their own escape room puzzle for the chance to win a $500 scholarship and potentially be featured in a future MPOWER escape room.

Why is MPOWER doing this contest?

Escape room designs embody all elements of STEAM ( Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math). This contest further supports the development of these skills for students in 7-12th grades. It offers students an opportunity to display their own creativity and win a prize while doing it!

How is the contest judged?

Each puzzle will be evaluated and scored based on the following “Criteria”: (i) artistic skills (ii) creativity and originality (iii) communication of the puzzle; (iv) adherence to the requirements and these Rules.

A panel of MPOWER employees will select five finalists and the MPOWER owners will select the final winner in July.
