2020 Global Innovation Award logo

The FIRST ® LEGO® League Global Innovation Award showcases the real-world, innovative solutions created by FIRST LEGO League teams from around the world as part of their annually-themed Challenge.

Demonstrating originality, creativity, potential impact and value, 20 semi-finalist teams are recognized for their inventions, and receive assistance to further develop solutions, including $20,000 USD to the winning team.

Inspired to be the next generation of innovators, many teams go on to meet government leaders, receive patents, bring their inventions to market, and become entrepreneurs.
