Official contest is slated for this summer

I think with all the racing endeavors that Red Bull is part of and all the commercials on TV we are probably all familiar with the energy drink and the fact that it gives you wings. Red Bull is sponsoring a contest for geeks called the Red Bull Creation contest. The first phase of the contest kicks off this week and runs from April 8-24.

The first stage is the qualifier phase where Red Bull checks out potential contestants to see what and how they think, this phase will have teams submitting a creation online in a qualifier with nothing but a theme to go with. The submissions will be judged by a panel and those that win will be invited to participate in the contest this summer. The contest will be held in NYC on July 7-10 and on the final day, the exhibit will be open for those in NYC to come check out.

Official registration for the contest will start on March 25 and you will need a team of four people. The preliminary topic will be unveiled on April 8 and the innovation by you and your team will need to be submitted by the 24th. The contest does have a few rules, well 11 of them to be precise.

Rule #1: Like algebra, you need to show your work. Posting a video of your creation is a must during the online registration process that starts March 25. It should include an introduction of your creation and how you made it. All team members must be in the final submitted video.

Rule #2: We said it before and we'll say it again: You must be a team of four.

Rule #3: You must nominate a team Captain to be in charge of all team correspondence.

Rule #4: This competition is open to residents of the U.S. ages 18 and up.

Rule #5: You must be ready for your 15 minutes of fame. You may be on television. We plan on sharing the brainchild of your creative genius with the world. We hope you're okay with that.

Rule #6: You must be willing to travel to New York this summer, whether Red Bull gives you a travel stipend or not. So be sure to pencil in July 7-10 on your calendar as "Days I take over the world."

Rule #7: Consider repurposing material in your creation. Brainpower is stronger than spending power anyway. And using objects that have a story behind them always adds intrigue.

Rule #8: Only one submission per team is allowed.

Rule #9: Your submission must be uploaded by midnight PST on April 24.

Rule #10: You agree to all of the legal terms and conditions at when you register. And complete the release form.

Rule #11: Bask in the creative process!

Once the winners are chosen and invited to NYC they will have no idea what the topic of the contest will be until the first day and then they will have 72 hours to build their creation. This sounds like a cool contest.
