If you've got the "next big thing", don't send it to Nichia! By entering this contest, you sign away your rights to whatever you wrote in the essay. $25k is a nice prize, but even if you don't win, Nichia owns your idea!

A few years ago, a young lady entered a contest to design the logo for a startup sportswear company. She designed a boomerang in flight as the entry. She won, and got $50. Now this logo is known as the Nike "Swoosh".
