Help Kaden go to Nationals!

Kaden Paghense was a recognized inventor at the Connecticut Invention Convention and received the Moving the World Forward award from Pratt and Whitney. Kaden has proven to be an incredible problem seeker, researcher, designer, engineer and problem solver. Now he needs your help. Please consider sponsoring this inspiring young entrepreneur by helping send him to the National Invention Convention!

Kaden is a compassionate young man who wants to help keep kids safe at school. He has invented Locker Blocker, which can be used as every day lockers by students, but when engaged can block intruders from having access to hallways within school buildings. Kaden is in the 5th grade at Mountain View Elementary school in the Bristol, Connecticut.

Kaden has received an invitation to bring his invention to the National Invention Convention in Dearborn, Michigan. There are many fees associated with this. It cost $300 for student registration and $350 for each parent/chaperone registration. Airfare, transportation and hotel accommodations for 5 days are also out of pocket expenses. 

Please help Kaden get to Michigan to have the opportunity to present his invention and make a difference in the lives of our children.

Kaden appreciates all the support he has been receiving!!

Thank you for your consideration.
