One of the best ways that innovative people can be rewarded for their contribution to coming up with the wonderful products is through the Golden Mousetrap awards. This ensures that they are kept on their toes to come up with something new. The entry fees are also very affordable therefore anybody is able to ensure that they can get their innovations into the competitions and get the credit that they deserve. A lot of information is also given therefore people who are interested should be able to know what they are expected to do so as to get into the competition. Personally I think that these people should be given the honour they deserve since we stand to benefit from the ideas that come out of the genius brains.
