  • 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 Siemens Competition is open to high school students who are citizens or permanent residents (green card holders) of the United States. Students must be in good standing, enrolled in and attending one of the following:
    -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
    -Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) school
    -Foreign school as an exchange student or because your parent or guardian lives and works abroad
    -Homeschool provided that signatures are obtained from the school district responsible for such programs. If your state does not require district supervision, the parent or guardian responsible for the homeschooling must sign it
    -Students must be enrolled in high school (grades 9-12)

    Students submitting individual projects must be in good standing, enrolled in and attending their last year of high school (grade 12). Students must complete all high school courses required for college admissions no later than September 1. Team projects may have two or three members and do not need to include a senior (grade 12).
    -All team members must be in good standing, enrolled in and attending high school (grades 9-12), although team members may be from different schools.
    -Each team must designate a team leader who serves as the communication liaison between the Siemens Competition and the other members of the team. All team members must have active roles in the design, execution, and delivery of results of the research submitted to the Siemens Competition and have made a substantial contribution to the effort
    -If your team structure changes, you will be required to complete an acknowledgment form indicating the change and that all team members agree to the change. Teams will also be required to list all current and past team members' contributions, regardless if they were part of the final team, or not
