Do you love inventing and creating?

Get involved with MED-EL’s search for hearing inventions! There have been many incredible inventions that help people hear again – or for the first time – and make their lives so much better. There’ll be more inventions in the future – and that’s exactly where this competition comes in. We know children can come up with amazing ideas, so if you are aged 6-12 years old and have a brilliant invention bouncing around in that brain of yours, we’d love to hear all about it.

What type of invention could you make?

  • You could make a video telling us all about your invention idea (no longer than one minute)
  • You can create something super creative and send us a photo of your artwork
  • You could do a drawing or illustration of your invention

Need some inspiration? Check out the winning children’s inventions from the competition last year.

Ready, steady, invent!

Every idea is welcome. It could be a new invention, an improvement to something that already exists or a clever idea that helps people with hearing loss. The important thing is how it can help people with hearing loss at any age or make their lives easier.

Be inspired – and inspiring!

The judging panel (of MED-EL inventors) will be looking for originality, creativity, practicality, imagination and innovation in selecting the winning children’s inventions.
