This program is open to full-time students between the ages of 13 and 18 who are enrolled in a private or public school anywhere in the world. Homeschooled students in the same age group are also eligible. (Eligible minors must have their parents' or legal guardians' permission to enter.) To apply for this program, applicants must create a science fair project in one of the specified categories, either individually or as a group, and submit a video or presentation. Three finalist students or teams will be chosen, one in each age category (13-14, 15-16, and 17-18). Of those three finalists, one will be selected as the grand prize winner and will receive an National Geographic expedition to the Galapagos Islands and a $50,000 scholarship (to be split equally among the group if a team wins). The two remaining finalist winners will each receive a $25,000 scholarship, also to be split equally among the group if a team wins. See website for more details about this program.
