To celebrate National Inventors Month in August, Inventors Digest announced a contest giving away a laptop computer to a US middle and high school student for an 500 word or less essay on what technology, tool, product or services will shape our lives in 50 years (and why).

While the original deadline was the end of August, Inventors Digest has extended the deadline to September 31, 2009. A full list of rules and forms can be found at

The contest is being co-sponsored by Hewlett-Packard, Microsoft’s Imagine Cup, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, the Lemelson Center at the Smithsonian, among others.
