    The Siemens Competition

    The Siemens Competition was launched in 1998 to recognize America's best and brightest math and science students. A record number of 1,348 projects were received this year for the Siemens Competition, an increase of 12 percent over 2008 figures. The number of students submitting projects increased by 14 percent while more students than ever, 2,151, registered to enter.

    Entries are judged at the regional level by esteemed scientists at six leading research universities which host the regional competitions: California Institute of Technology; Carnegie Mellon University; Georgia Institute of Technology; Massachusetts Institute of Technology; University of Notre Dame; and The University of Texas at Austin.

    Winners of the regional events are invited to compete at the National Finals at New York University in New York City, December 3 - December 7, 2009.
