I found out about this concept and site from a yahoo group in which I participate. The site is Teaching with Contests .
This is what the site says: The purpose of Teaching with Contests is to assist educators in finding contests that can be used in the classroom to motivate students. We are here for the student and the teacher not the promotion of products or company public relations. Our goal is to select contests and programs whose primary goal is education and secondarily business/product promotion.
Here's a few examples: Lego Smart Creativity Contest, Send you Face to Space, International Youth Art Contest, etc.
