Requirements for Nominated Students:
Each student may submit only one entry. Each student is required to complete ALL sections of the online application, which includes the uploading of the following required documents (you will be prompted within the application):
  1. Permission Form (REQUIRED, found in this packet or available online)—Student promises to adhere to ethics statement; parent or guardian grants permission to participate and share student information.
  2. Visual Aid (REQUIRED)—provide data that supports your research.
  3. Fair Paperwork (as applicable)—Projects involving humans, vertebrate animals or potentially hazardous biological agents require pre-approval and evidence of Scientific Rules Committee (SRC) or Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval. More information is available in the application.
  1. Each student must work independently on all application questions (for team projects, each team member must also answer each question individually, as applications are judged separately).
  2. The student’s work should be free of scientific fraud and misconduct, including plagiarism, forgery, use or presentation of other researcher’s work as one’s own, and fabrication of data. Fraudulent projects will fail to qualify for the Broadcom MASTERS competition and the Society reserves the right to revoke recognition of a project subsequently found to have been fraudulent.
