For Nominees

Congratulations on your nomination! You are part of a select group of students invited to apply to the Broadcom MASTERS national competition.
The Broadcom MASTERS application is now closed. Please email with any questions.

As a nominee, you have been chosen among the top 10% of the 6th, 7th and 8th grade competitors at a Society-affiliated science and engineering fair in the United States, and now join a network of distinguished alumni. Great work! 

Broadcom MASTERS nominees receive a packet of materials at their fair, which includes instructions. The next stop in the process is to complete the online application. 

The online application asks questions about your science or engineering fair project and your understanding of science and engineering in everyday life. Students must complete and submit their online application and parental/guardian permission form by the June 15, 2016 deadline to officially enter the national competition.

Entries are judged during the summer and 300 national semifinalists will be announced on September 6, 2016. From the semifinalists, 30 finalists and one parent/guardian will win an all-expense-paid trip to the national finals in Washington, DC to showcase their projects, compete in teams and visit sites that celebrate innovation through science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. 

To understand the nomination process, please see the FAQ.
