Eva Gupta, student of 2/3 Quest at Rosa Parks Elementary, won the first prize in her age group at recently concluded “Invent Washington” competition in Tacoma.

Invent Washington is an organization that promotes the idea that all children should have the opportunity to become an inventor and entrepreneur. More than 200 students from schools all over the state including King, Spokane, Yakima, Wenatchee, Naches and Sahale participated in the competition.

Each student was asked to think of a problem, invent a solution, build a prototype and create a display showcasing their work. Eva invented a swim bag organizer which will help her keep her things organized when she goes for swimming.

Her invention was widely appreciated by judges and public as solving a real problem. Next month, she will compete in the national competition held in Michigan, where companies will be looking to buy ideas and turning them into products.
