We love new media company OZY for discovering and curating the best and most interesting corners of the web. Now we love them for another, more altruistic reason: They’re leading a quest to discover the best minds of tomorrow.

Fusion’s Alicia Menendez sat down with OZY founder and CEO, Carlos Watson, to talk the OZY Genius Awards. They’re giving out a cool $10,000 to up to 10 young geniuses who want to turn their ideas into a world-improving reality. Phew, we feel lazy now.

Check out what the youngins in your life can do to throw their hat in the ring. And since we’re talking genius ideas, we asked Watson to rank his top genius ideas. (Where does Gilt rank compared to sliced bread? The answer may surprise you!)
