"With eye drops, it can be hard (for seniors to use), if they have arthritis," Noah Frank, 11, said. "But with nasal spray, they can just (spray) it up to their nose."

After learning how impressed Riggs was with their idea, Allen decided to submit their innovation for an award.

"This is the first year that I have submitted one of their ideas," said Allen, who has coached the teams since 2009.

Eye Max will compete with 457 innovations for the top prize, Allen said.

"The grand prize in the judging part of it is $20,000 towards making your product happen,” Allen said. “They have had multiple teams get patents for their ideas through FLL."

League officials will notify the top three winners of their achievement in early April.

Eighth-grader Joe Gelzer, 14, anticipates the possibilities.
