Breakthrough Junior Challenge Global Competition 2024

Can you explain a big scientific idea with a short film (2:00 – two minutes max)?              Applications are now open for the Breakthrough Junior Challenge Global Competition 2024. The Breakthrough Junior Challenge is an annual, global science video competition for high-school students.


You get it. You’ve grasped an important scientific theory, concept or principle.

Now can you share your insight?

An inventive video can get across complex material that would take pages of text to communicate.

To take part in the Breakthrough Junior Challenge, create a short video (2:00 – two minutes max) to explain a big idea in one of these fields:

  • Physics
  • Mathematics
  • Life Sciences

Your film can take any form you like: animation, talking head, documentary, dramatic reconstruction, whatever. It’s worth keeping in mind that video is a dynamic visual medium – using diagrams, simulations, physical demonstrations etc. is a lot more effective than standing in front of a blackboard talking.

The videos will be judged according to the following criteria:

  • Engagement
  • Illumination
  • Creativity
  • Difficulty

If you’re looking for guidance, you can see some of last year’s top-scoring entries here and below. But remember, to show ‘creativity’ your film should be as original as possible.


If your video is chosen as the Winner, you will receive

  • $250,000Post-secondary scholarship
  • $50,000Prize for your
  • $100,000Breakthrough
