***Deadline for Making an Application to Broadcom Masters is JUNE 14, 2017, 8 p.m. ET

Dear Broadcom MASTERS Fair Nominees and Contacts,

REMINDER:  The application is due Wednesday, June 14th at 8pm Eastern Time. If your students have not submitted their applications yet, haven’t started, never fear. Nominated students still have plenty of time—every year hundreds of students open and submit their applications on the day of the deadline. We encourage students to start earlier in case they encounter any problems, but it’s doable.

Our team is committed to helping all nominees as they work on their applications over the weekend. We will be checking the email account regularly throughout the weekend—please encourage nominees to send their questions, big or small, to masters@societyforscience.org.

As in prior years, we are proud to offer $5,000 in cash drawings to our fair network, based on the number of nominees from your fair who apply to Broadcom MASTERS. All fairs with 50% or higher application rates will be entered into a drawing to win either $500 or $1,000—we will give away a total of 9 prizes in late June.

Thank you for your continued support of this program!

Best,

Allie

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.
  3. Student must submit his or her entry by the final submission deadline of June 14, 2017. The Broadcom MASTERS application will open for nominees on February 1, 2017 and will remain open to students after the affiliated fair nomination process.
