Innovate or Die Pedal-Powered Machine Contest

We're asking your students to invent and build environmentally friendly, zero-emission machines that transform human pedal power into a new and useful purpose.

After they build it, they film it and post it on YouTube by Sunday, December 15th. The Grand Prize for the most innovative submission will be $5,000 and a Specialized Globe bike for the winner(s). The inventors behind the top 5 runner-up inventions will also receive Specialized Globe Bikes.

This is an opportunity to flex your school's inventive muscle and have some fun doing it. And perhaps even help save our planet, one pedal stroke at a time. For an example innovation and contest specifics, please visit

We look forward to your participation. Thank you and good luck,
Erin Bremmer Goodby,
Silverstein & Partners
