Everest Academy is a ministry of Everest Family Church in Hayden. We offer freedom along with quality resources, information, activities and support to those homeschooling in Alabama. We believe that the parent has the best interests of their children at heart. We believe that the parent is the first and only teacher that a child needs. In keeping with this philosophy, we wish to be a very hands-off church "cover" school and allow the parent to lead and guide their children in the direction and at the pace they feel is best suited to their children. We ask only for what the law requires while offering support along with quality resources to aid families in their efforts.

April 23, 2021 Deadline, Spellman HV Clean Tech Competition


Everyone involved in the organization of the Competition felt that this theme not only best exemplifies what we need as a human race, but also what best showcases what Clean Tech stands for as a research event: a healthy earth. The variety of solutions to this problem is wide. Not only are highly innovative and cutting edge tech solutions needed to solve problems on a large scale, but easily attainable and cost-effective answers are needed as well. These low-cost and widely accessible solutions are the key to bringing a wider range of participation in the global fight against climate change. Because of this, this year’s Categories are:
Low Cost & High Tech

Low Cost – When it comes to innovation, sometimes the best solutions are ones that require lower technological sophistication. However Low Cost does not mean low effort; a tin can with some carbon filter is not something the Competition is looking for. It is in this spirit that we challenge you to find an innovative design that can be replicated around the world regardless of economic situation.

High Tech - While a low tech solution has broader applications in many ways, cutting edge technology is what really expands our capabilities as a civilization in the end. Projects entered into our High Tech category are looking to push to envelope of what is possible with our current capabilities. Teams working on this type of research are utilizing the most advanced technology we have available, or creating entirely new processes to expand our current abilities.

Competition Information

If you are or know a student looking to address this international issue with innovative engineering and a revolutionary design, this is the Competition for you! Contestants research a specific solution to this problem, register for free online in teams of 1-3, and then submit a 5-15 page paper to be judged by an international team of engineers, university instructors and industry professionals! Finalist teams will present their research and constructed prototypes at our Finals in early August, as they vie for the $10,000 per category grand prize!

Our website has a wealth of information, including all rules, regulationsimportant datesprizes and more. We have information on all of our past winning projects as well, so you can see many of the innovative ways our past Finalists have researched solutions to the questions we pose!

Please feel free to either email or call the Administrator at the information listed below. I would love to help you find a way to enter teams into the only global innovation competition for high school students!
