Exciting Opportunities for Teachers and Students


Vermont Partners


Wildcat Inventors Workshop





Industry & Academic Partners make the

Vermont Science, Technology, Engineering & Math Fair possible. 

Contact us to find out how you can too!


Local and national partners make available over $8,000 in cash awards and $13,000 in trips and expenses.  Vermont Post-Secondary schools provide Vermont Next Generation Scholarships worth nearly than $900,000 to students.   Many of these and other partners provide invaluable additional services.


Join these Participating Schools using our Educator Outreach resources.




We are affiliated with the Intel International Science & Engineering Fair which awards additional prizes and makes our participation in the Broadcom MASTERS competition possible.  We are also affiliated with the Stockholm Junior Water Prize, I-SWEEEP, and the Genius Olympiad.  These programs bring another $9,000 to Vermont students and their teachers.


We encourage our high school junior winners to consider entering their project in the Siemens Foundation Competition and the Intel Science Talent Search in the early fall of their senior year. Team project winners in grades 9-12 should also consider entering their project in the Siemens Foundation Competition.  These are poster presentation competitions, just like the VSSMF. 


Advanced high school students should consider entering their projects in the Sigma Xi Student Research Showcase, This is a virtual presentation competition scheduled for mid-late March.


We also encourage all grade 9-12 entrants to consider entering the Regional Junior Science and Humanities Symposium.  This is a platform presentation of your project. Our 13-18 year old entrants should also consider entering their project on line in the Google Science Fair.


Another competition with ample rewards for both the school and students is Samsung’s Solve for Tomorrow.  This is a challenge to prepare a video showing "How STEM can be applied to help improve your local community."  Each state that provides entries will have at least  one winner.  A fourth competition is the At-Large BioGeneius Challenge. It is a virtual competition for research in biotechnology.


Should a student need mentoring or financial assistance for any of these programs, contact us.


For other competitions in the area of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) check out the Vermont ESTEAM Network.
