Note: InventHelp would like to remind you to consult with a patent attorney before submitting your idea to this or any other contest.

Pepsi Co., one of the biggest cola companies in the world, is looking for “shovel-ready,” feasible ideas! Pepsi is accepting 1,000 ideas a month from businesses, nonprofits, groups or individuals who want to have a positive impact on their community.

Part of what we at InventHelp like about this contest is that the grants range in size from $5,000 (for individuals who want to get the ball rolling) to $250,000 (best for well-oiled organizations). It’s up to the submitters to choose what level they want to go for. Up to 10 grants in each level (there are $25,000 and $50,000 levels as well) are awarded every month in the following categories: Health; Arts & Culture; Food & Shelter; The Planet; Neighborhoods; and Education.

Pepsi has received the 1,000 maximum applications for this month, but you can submit your application now for the next submission cycle, which hits March 1, 2010. And if you’re not quite ready to submit yet, there’s good news: the contest repeats each month!

Visit RefreshEverything.com to learn more, download a helpful toolkit and start your application. You can also vote for up to 10 of your favorite big ideas every day. Invention Girl loves the bright graphics and easily navigable design of the site, and it makes voting fun and easy.

InventHelp and Invention Girl hope to see your idea on the Pepsi Refresh Project website next month!
