Project Paradigm is a private foundation headquartered in Los Angeles. Our mission is to collaborate with passionate individuals and organizations to inspire, lead, and facilitate paradigm shifts in the approaches to global challenges.
In a close partnership with the American Red Cross and a broad coalition of youth and educational organizations, Project Paradigm created The Paradigm Challenge, an annual competition that inspires youth innovation to address important social issues.
Project Paradigm recognizes the need to spark and cultivate interest in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). We also seek to inspire kindness, creativity, and collaboration among youth. Project Paradigm created The Paradigm Challenge to promote these dual objectives.
The Challenge offers more than $250,000 in cash prizes and awards, including up to $100,000 to the winning team.
In the first annual Paradigm Challenge, youth will generate new ideas to prevent injuries and fatalities from home fires – America’s #1 disaster threat.
