The Regeneron Science Talent Search (Regeneron STS) is the nation’s oldest and most prestigious science competition for high school seniors. The competition provides a forum for original research that is recognized and reviewed by a national jury of professional scientists.
Annually, high school seniors from around the country accept the challenge of conducting independent science, math, or engineering research. The competition recognizes 300 student scholars and their schools each year and invites 40 student finalists to Washington, DC, to participate in final judging, display their work to the public, and meet with notable scientists and government leaders. Each year Regeneron STS scholars and finalists compete for $3.1 million in awards. Twelfth-grade students can win up to $250,000 for their incredible science research.
Deadlines: Applications and recommendations are due by November 9, 2022. The technical support deadline is November 8, 2022.
Educators, parents, and learners worldwide can explore the experimental technology heading to the Moon as part of NASA’s Artemis I test flight, with a free, interactive virtual tour from Amazon Future Engineer on Kahoot!
For nearly 40 years, the National Science Foundation, on behalf of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, has honored STEM teachers nationwide for both their deep content knowledge and their ability to motivate students. The Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST) are the highest honors bestowed by the United States government for K–12 STEM educators in public, private, and charter schools. PAEMSTawardees, of which there are up to two per state and jurisdiction honored each year, receive a certificate signed by the President; a $10,000 award; a paid trip to Washington, DC; and access to a nationwide cadre of award-winning teachers.
The award alternates yearly between K–6 and 7–12 grades. This Academic Year 2022–2023, members of the public can nominate a teacher at the 7–12 level. Teachers may also directly apply themselves. Nominations are due by January 9, 2023, and applications are due by February 6, 2023. Learn more at www.paemst.org.
