The Intel Science Talent Search (Intel STS) is the nation's most prestigious pre-college science competition. Annually, students entering the Intel STS compete for more than $1.6 million in awards. Only 40 students are announced as finalists each year and invited to Washington, D.C. in March to participate in final judging, display their work to the public, meet with notable scientists, and compete for three top awards of $150,000 each.

Alumni of STS hold more than 100 of the world's most coveted science and math honors, including the Nobel Prize and National Medal of Science.
