In support of the young geniuses out there, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) is having a free Youth Day. Students with big ideas, young creative entrepreneurs, kid inventors and innovators, we want to help you protect your valuable intellectual property (IP). You can participate online or in-person at USPTO headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia, on Tuesday, August 9, from 1-4:05 p.m. ET.

Register to attend online.

Register to attend in-person.

Don’t miss your chance to:

· Hear from young inventors and entrepreneurs who are taking their creative works to market from “Shark Tank” to QVC.

· Get inspired for your journey! Be among the first to playtest EquIP HQ, our new virtual portal that teaches young people about patents and trademarks, and test your inventor trading card I.Q. Your opinions matter.

· Learn how to enter the 2022 Congressional App Challenge. You’ll hear from recent winners, and we’ll help you get started with a hands-on ideation session. You could the one to develop and design this year’s winning app.

We hope to see you on August 9.

And if Youth Day inspires you, consider registering for the USPTO’s free online Invention-Con 2022, coming August 10-12. Learn more and register early for Invention-Con 2022.
