Attention all elementary school and elementary school kids who are creative (which is everyone in our opinion). We have a creativity contest called Court of Creativity that you’re gonna love.

Drawing in your class? That is perfect.

Telling a one-of-a-kind story at school with your classmates and making trick shots with custom jerseys you sewed yourselves with a robot? AMAZING - we can’t wait to see it!

The Harlem Globetrotters is partnering with Jersey Mike’s Subs to run a creativity contest for elementary schools to see what today’s kids can create.

Go to to share your creative ideas as it relates to basketball and to have a chance to be one of 10 elementary schools to win $1,000 and have a chance to be named the grand-prize winning school to receive a live performance from The Harlem Globetrotters.

Want Some Tips To Inspire Your Creativity & Ideas to Give Your School The Best Chance To Be One of The 10 Winning Elementary Schools to Get $1,000? We Got You.

Creativity is everywhere and we believe some of the world's best creators and dreamers are kids. But, where do you start?

Here are last year’s top 10 winners that may inspire you and your classmates to get creative.

In the inaugural year of the Court of Creativity contest, submissions came from elementary school p.e. classrooms, science classes, groups of friends, and family members who helped their elementary school students share their creativity.

A good way to think of what you can create is to ask “what is something you and your friends love to do?”

Then, think of a way to relate what you love to do to basketball!

Now the most important part is to record your creative idea and share it at and you’re all set to give your school a chance to win big.
