Application Requirements
Students must submit a "project" that demonstrates exceptional achievement in hands-on engineering or science. A student will meet this requirement by submitting their "project" in one of the following presentation formats:
  • Youtube or Vimeo Video (3 minutes): submit link
  • PDF slides (no more than 10): upload below
Projects must be solely the work of the applicant; no team projects are allowed. Students may elect to submit a project they have completed for another contest, but research papers will not be considered.

Finalists will be invited to a required competition in March to determine the winners.
