2019 Top 300 Masters Announced
Broadcom Foundation and Society for Science & the Public on September 4 announced the Top 300 competitors in the 9th annual Broadcom MASTERS® — the nation's premier Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) competition for middle school students. The Broadcom MASTERS, a program founded and produced by the Society for Science & the Public, seeks to inspire young scientists, engineers and innovators to solve the grand challenges of the 21st Century.
The Top 300 MASTERS include a nearly equal number of girls and boys with about 52% males and 47% females selected from over 2,300 applicants. The students come from 37 states, plus the District of Columbia, with 77 from California, 40 from Florida and 29 from Texas. 199 students attend public schools, 76 attend private schools, 16 attend charter schools and nine are home schooled.
30 finalists will be chosen from this select pool for an all-expenses paid trip to Washington, DC to compete for more than $100,000 in awards and prizes. Finalists will be announced September 18.
In order to compete in Broadcom MASTERS, a student must first compete in a Society-affiliated science fair around the country. Each year, the top 10% of 6th, 7th, and 8th grade participants are nominated to enter this competition. Visit our Find a Fair page to locate a Broadcom MASTERS fair near you!
