Entries have been invited for the Malayala Manorama Yuva Mastermind 2015, a contest organized for college and school students. This contest is opened for science and technology projects that can be exhibited as working models. Opening doors for future inventions and inventors, the Yuva Mastermind is meant for those who are not satisfied with the current inventions.
With the technical support offered by Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development Centre (IEDC) of Amaljyothi Engineering College, Kanjirappally, Yuva Mastermind will set the platform for some innovative concepts.
According to the organizers, the prize money for the college level is as follows: Rs 1 lakh (1st prize), Rs 60,000 (2nd prize), Rs 40,000 (3rd prize). Meanwhile for the school level the prize money would be Rs 50,000 (1st prize), Rs 30,000 (2nd prize), Rs 20,000 (3rd prize).

Study projects which cannot be exhibited will not be considered for the content.
This competition is opened for students of professional colleges in the state including medical and engineering, technical institutes, art and science colleges across the state. Students of 9th standard to Plus Two can compete under the school category. According to the rule set by the organizers, a team shall have a maximum of five students and a project guide who should be a teacher/lecturer in the same institution.
An institution can send any number of teams, but a team will be allowed to present only one project. The project should be finished within a period of three months.
