There's no stopping the kids on the PBS reality show Design Squad, where the next generation of creatives build everything from cardboard furniture to wind-powered kinetic art. But now any design-minded youth ages 5 through 19 can jump into the fray with the Trash to Treasure competition. The rules: Use everyday materials to help the environment, move people or stuff, or facilitate play. One lucky winner takes home $10,000, a possible appearance on the show and other prizes. Deadline: June 30.
