Unfortunately, Challenge.gov does not accept registrations from children under age 13. If you are 12 years old or younger, go get your parents and ask them to use this site for you. Trust us, they’ll be happy to help you win some great challenges and prizes!
You can win if you surf with an adult
If you are under the age of 13, you must have a parent or guardian register for you on this site, and let them submit your great ideas or innovations for you. You'll still be able to win challenges and prizes on this site, but your parents will be able to make sure that you're protected from strangers or others who want to misuse your private information.
You can't win if you break the rules
If you register yourself and we find out that you are younger than 13, we will have to remove your account, and you will not be able to win a challenge.
We respect the law, and are protecting you
Challenge.gov currently does not accept registrations from, or knowingly collect information from, children under 13 years old. If you are under age 13, please do not attempt to register for Challenge.gov or provide any personal information about yourself to us.
