I have an idea but I’m not sure if it is appropriate for the CST Inspired Minds Learning Project.

Can anyone submit an idea?

Anyone who is over the age of 13 can submit an idea, if it’s on behalf of a Canadian not-for-profit organization, charity, community organization, school, non-profit, or other similar type of group. 

You cannot submit an idea as an individual.  However, if you have an idea you’d like to implement, see if you can find a Canadian not-for-profit organization to partner with who may have a need.
