North Carolina

In order to participate in the 2018 NC BioGENEius Challenge, students must compete at the state NC Student Academy of Sciences (NCSAS) competition. Regional competitions start in December of 2017. 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 at the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics on March 23, 2018. 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 and will receive, along with his or her chaperone, an all-expense paid trip to compete at the national competition in June 2018 in Boston. There, he or she will compete at the International BioGENEius Challenge and present their work to industry innovators currently transforming the scientific landscape.
