Get those wheels turning: Young Inventor Challenge handing out scholarship money to kids for their genius ideas

MILWAUKEE -- Have a little inventor at home? Have them enter the Young Inventor Challenge put on by Chicago Toy and Game. Entries are being accepting until Oct. 31.

Kids ages 6 to 18 can submit their original toy and game ideas via video -- or at the Chicago Toy and Game Fair at Navy Pier in a "Science fair" type atmosphere. Winners are awarded in six categories -- including most creative concept, best ride-on or wheeled concept, best playful learning concept and most marketable. All and all, $10,000 in scholarships will be handed out to entrants.
