  • The Siemens Foundation (the "Foundation") established the Siemens Competition in Math, Science & Technology ("Siemens Competition" or "Competition") in 1999. The Siemens Competition seeks to promote excellence by encouraging students to undertake individual or team research projects. It fosters intensive research that improves students' understanding of the value of scientific study and informs their consideration of future careers in these disciplines. You can compete as an individual or as a member of a team. Individual projects promote independent research. Team projects foster collaborative research efforts, as well as individual contributions to the cooperative endeavor.

    The winners of the individual and team regional awards advance to compete at the national level. The national awards are announced at a special event hosted by the Siemens Foundation in Washington, D.C.

    Applicants must be in good standing, enrolled in and attending a high school (grades 9-12) in the United States, Puerto Rico, Guam, U.S. Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Wake and Midway Islands, or the Marianas.
