In order to participate in the 2021 NC BioGENEius Challenge, students must compete at the state NC Student Academy of Sciences (NCSAS) competition. Regional competitions start in December of 2020. High school students will have to place either 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place in their category to qualify for the state competition, which will take place virtually March 2021.  Please see https://www.ncsas.org/registration for information updates.

Students competing at the state NCSAS competition will be automatically considered for the NC BioGENEius Challenge. Judges from around the state will score research in any one of the three areas: healthcare, sustainability, or environment. One finalist will be selected to attend the 2021 Digital BIO International Conference, June 10-11 & 14-18, 2021. There, the student will compete at the International BioGENEius Challenge and present their work to industry innovators currently transforming the scientific landscape.
