"The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" is looking for incredible young inventors to feature on an upcoming Fallonventions segment! Do you know an outgoing, energetic student with a clever, fun, visual invention? This opportunity is for them! Inventors must be aged kindergarten-high school and have a working model or prototype. Watch videos from previous segments at nbc.com/fallonventions.

Here's how to submit an invention to the show:

Make a short video (90 seconds max) that showcases the inventor and invention. Keep it simple. No need for music, graphics, special effects, or text. Keep edits to a minimum. Do it in a quiet location with good lighting. You can use a smartphone - make sure the videographer holds it horizontally (landscape), and not vertically (portrait).

Make sure the inventor says the following things in the video:

  • Name, Age, Hometown
  • Invention Name
  • Explain how the invention works - and show it in action! We want to see it working!

Upload the video to YouTube and email the link to David Garcia at The Tonight Show. You can mark your YouTube video as "Unlisted" to protect your privacy (so it can't be seen by anyone who doesn't have the link). You could also send the video to David via email attachment or through a file transfer service, like Google Drive or Dropbox.


Make sure the email you send includes the following info:

  • Inventor's name, age, hometown, school/grade
  • Invention name
  • Parent name, phone number, email address
  • Has the inventor been on TV before? Tell us more!
  • Has the inventor entered any contests/competitions or won any awards with this invention? Tell us about them!
