Google’s Science Fair competition regularly leads to clever inventions from teens, and this year’s event (the fifth ever) is giving junior pioneers an extra incentive to strive for a prize.

On top of familiar rewards, including $100,000 in scholarships and trips to the Galapagos or Virgin Galactic’s spaceport, there’s a Community Impact Award that honors efforts tackling environmental or health issues – kids who clean up the planet or save a life may get special recognition.

Teachers will also get their due through a new Inspiring Educator award. Young creators have until May 18th to submit their finished projects to Google, and you’ll hear about the winners at a finalist event starting on September 19th.
