Society for Science & the Public (SSP), the publisher of Science News for Kids, launched this competition in 1942, first in partnership with Westinghouse, and, since 1998 with Intel.
The Intel STS is the national stage for the United States’ best and brightest high school seniors to present their original research for judging. In the last few years the top winner of the Intel STS has won $100,000.

Over seven decades, more than 130,000 students from U.S. high schools in all 50 states and most U.S. territories have completed independent science research projects and submitted entries to the Intel STS. Among many other honors, seven alumni of the program—the nation’s oldest and most highly regarded pre-college science contest—have been selected as Nobel Laureates.
