The Intel STS is the nation’s most prestigious science research competition for high school seniors. Since 1942, first in partnership with Westinghouse and beginning in 1998 with Intel, the Society has provided a national stage for the country’s best and brightest young scientists to present original research to nationally recognized professional scientists.
Finalists were selected by a panel of distinguished scientists and engineers from among 300 semifinalists, and nearly 1,800 entrants. Alumni of the competition have received more than 100 of the world’s most coveted science and math honors. These include five National Medals of Science winners, eleven MacArthur Foundation Fellows, two Fields Medalists and eight Nobel Laureates.
