Intel Science Talent Search
The Intel Science Talent Search (Intel STS), a program of Society for Science & the Public, is the nation’s oldest and most prestigious pre-college science competition. It honors exceptional high school seniors for their scientific research and their potential as future leaders in the scientific community.
Each year, approximately 1,800 students attending American high schools enter the competition in the hope of winning awards. The applicant pool is first narrowed to three hundred semifinalists, who – along with their schools – receive cash prizes.
